Ready to start down the weight loss path? Like many people, you may find that the sleeve gastrectomy is the recommended approach and the most commonly performed procedure. That’s because it does a good job enabling weight loss and requires you to make healthy lifestyle changes.
How does it do this? A section of the stomach is removed through minimally invasive incisions using a robotic-assisted surgical system or laparoscopic surgery. What remains is a smaller stomach in the shape of a sleeve. This sleeve restricts food intake and reduces appetite caused by hunger-inducing hormones by removing a portion of the stomach responsible for its production.
