Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy is a type of bariatric surgery that involves the removal of a substantial part of the stomach to restrict food intake. The procedure has gained wide acceptance because of its demonstrated weight loss and metabolic benefits.

Advantages of Sleeve Gastrectomy
Gastric sleeve surgery helps the patient to achieve rapid and significant weight loss by curbing the appetite and limiting the food intake desired by the patient. As a part of the stomach is removed, it diminishes the body’s ability to produce the appetite inducing hormone ghelin. The patient naturally reduces their food intake and the smaller stomach ensures that the patient is able to eat less.
Secondly, gastric sleeve surgery has proved to be highly effective in addressing obesity related health conditions, which often do not respond to simple weight loss. Researchers believe that sleeve gastrectomy causes suppression of the gut hormones and cretins, in addition to ghelin, which produces an immediate ameliorative effect on metabolic health problems, including Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.
