For More Information

Gastric sleeve surgery, also referred to as sleeve gastrectomy, is the most commonly performed weight loss procedure in the U.S. It's quick and easy to perform by experienced bariatric surgeons, and it may be recommended if you have certain high-risk medical problems. Your surgeon may also recommend it if your BMI is either very high or at the low end of the range for weight loss surgery candidates. Gastric sleeve can be performed alone, or it may be followed by a duodenal switch procedure to help you lose more weight.
