Surgeries / Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve

The Gastric Sleeve is a surgical procedure to treat obesity by reducing the stomach capacity by 80%.


The Gastric Sleeve can restrict the stomach capacity by reducing the food intake in a similar way in every meal. Also, it inhibits the secretion of a hormone called Ghrelin by which the appetite is triggered.
