Gastric Sleeve

The Gastric Sleeve procedure is also known as “Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy.” This highly effective weight loss surgery is conducted by only a small number of highly skilled bariatric surgeons in the world – several of whom practice at the Detroit Medical Center in Detroit, Michigan.

In this operation, the surgeon removes the left side of the stomach, which reduces the overall size of the body’s food-storage organ and thus helps the patient to lower food-intake. And the good news here is that the surgery doesn’t rely on “rerouting” or “reconnecting” of intestines. Simpler and easier to perform than Gastric Bypass, the Gastric Sleeve also doesn’t depend on implanting any artificial devices within the abdomen.

Is the Gastric Sleeve Right for You?

For some patients with lower BMI, there are several potential advantages to consider:

  • The long-term side effects are often reduced, since no intestinal bypass is required
  • No foreign bodies are implanted in the abdomen (this could be important for patients who are also considering a gastric band)
  • Gastric Sleeve can help patients with other medical issues, including such conditions as Crohn’s disease, asthma that requires frequent steroids, anemia or extensive prior surgery
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy can be effective for patients who must take anti-inflammatory medications
  • Remember, also, that for patients with a BMI above 60, the gastric sleeve procedure can be the first part of a two-step bariatric procedure that’s custom-tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
