    What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

    Gastric surgeries are preferred in cases where other methods such as diet and exercise are not effective. These surgeries include various procedures such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy. These methods target weight loss by limiting food intake or affecting nutrient absorption.

It reduces the size of the stomach and limits the amount of nutrients that can be consumed. This surgery promotes weight loss by reducing the desire to eat not only by mechanical action, but also by hormonal changes. It helps the patient reach his/her ideal weight or maintain his/her weight after surgery.

    How is Gastric Sleeve Surgery Performed?

    In sleeve gastrectomy or sleeve gastrectomy surgery, a large part of the stomach is removed and an integrated system is formed with the esophagus and intestines.

    Gastric Sleeve surgery is usually performed laparoscopically, in the form of closed surgery. In this procedure, the stomach is removed by approximately 80% by inserting various tools through the small holes in the abdomen, and the remaining stomach has a banana-shaped volume.

    Thanks to the use of laparoscopic techniques, this procedure can usually be performed in a less invasive way, which can accelerate the patient’s healing process.
