Gastric Sleeve

A gastric sleeve is a weight loss surgery option or bariatric patients. During this surgery, part of the stomach is removed. The remaining stomach is formed into a banana-shaped stomach considered a sleeve by practitioners. 

After this operation, the patient’s stomach is roughly one-tenth of the size that it was originally. Like other weight-loss surgeries, making the stomach smaller is an ideal way to help the patients control and monitor the amount of food they eat.

A gastric sleeve should not be confused with gastric bypass, this is a different weight-loss operation that bariatric patients can choose.
