Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery in India

Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy

Banded Sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss surgery (keyhole surgery) that reduces the size of the stomach by about 70%, which gives patients the feel full on less food. Talk with Dr. Sukhvinder Singh Saggu on Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery in India.

How is Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy done?

The stomach is divided along the greater curvature, resulting in a capacity reduction of approximately 70%. The remainder of the stomach is left intact but food only passes through the smaller ‘sleeve’ portion. In addition, further restriction can be ensured by inserting a ring around the upper part of the sleeve, which further reduces the amount of food that can be eaten and more importantly it is thought that ring will help to decrease the possibility of sleeve dilatation in the future.
