Why Choose Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric Sleeve Recovery Time: 2 to 4 weeks and typically length of stay in hospital less then the Gastric Bypass

Risks and Complications: Gastric Sleeve has a lower risk of dumping syndrome, and way less potential bowel obstruction in the future

Gastric Sleeve is much more effective than the Gastric Band on the resolution of other health issues such as Diabetes, HTN or Sleep Apnea!

In the Gastric Sleeve: The surgeon removes a portion of the stomach, producing a tube-shaped stomach (sleeve). There is no bypassing of stomach or intestines, therefore less likely to have malabsorption with the Gastric Sleeve!

Weight Loss Results: Patients should expect with Gastric Sleeve to lose weight at a slower, steadier rate comparable to the Gastric Bypass and more than Gastric Band. In the first 12 to 18 months, you might lose 60 to 70 percent of excess weight on average.
