A type of treatment modality falling in the group of bariatrics which helps in reducing the obesity by surgically manipulating the stomach is known as a sleeve gastrectomy surgery. Around 80 percent of the stomach is removed surgically leaving behind a sleeve or tube like structure, hence the name. This method helps in reducing the appetite since the storage and digestive capacity of the stomach itself is reduced. Less the hunger, less will be the amount of food consumed.
Diagnostic tests required prior to sleeve gastrectomy surgery include:
It is also known by the names of vertical sleeve gastrectomy or a gastric sleeve procedure. It is done under general anesthesia with a laparoscopic approach. However it is an irreversible process as the part of stomach once removed cannot be replaced or restored. Multiple incision holes are made in the abdomen and through these approaches, outer margin of the stomach is removed. A small portion of stomach in the form of a sleeve is left behind along with the pylorus muscle which is responsible for emptying the food from the stomach into the small intestine. As a result of reduction in the size of the stomach, the patient feels full after eating less and thus takes in fewer calories. The surgery removes that portion of the stomach which produces a hormone that can make a patient feel hungry.
This method is much easier as compared to a gastric bypass procedure since it does not involve any rerouting or reconnection of any intestines. Also since no banding, stitching or stapling of the stomach is required, it is also easier than the lap band method.
If the regular vigorous exercises and diet monitoring do not help reduce your weight and you happen to fall in the class 1 or 2 of the obesity classification, you surely are an ideal candidate for the sleeve gastrectomy procedure.
You reduce drastically by having a control over your satiety centre. You eat very less and start feeling full already. Hence the need to eat more and take in more calories is avoided. Since the procedure is less invasive making use of laparoscopic approaches, complications such as scars are limited.
