Am I an ideal candidate for a gastric sleeve surgery?

Gastric Band Surgery is recommended when for patients who suffer from obesity related problems and have failed to lose weight with other treatment options. In addition, patients who are more likely to get preapproved for a Roux-en-Y surgery include people with BMI of 40 or more, when the patients have been overweight for over five years or have a serious obesity-related health problem such as: high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea. 

What should I expect from a VSG surgery at Angeles Hospital?

Sleeve gastrectomy is performed laparoscopically under general anesthesia in a hospital operating room. During the procedure, a small ‘keyhole’ incision is made in the patient’s abdomen and the surgeon uses specialized tools to remove a large portion of the widest part of the patient’s stomach. Once the excess stomach tissue is removed, the open edges of the remaining portion of the stomach are stapled together, forming a banana-shaped tube or ‘sleeve.’

The gastric sleeve procedure reduces the size of the stomach to about 15% to 30% of its original capacity and relieves the patient of the part of the stomach that produces the appetite stimulating hormone ‘Ghrelin.’ Gastric sleeve surgery permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is not reversible.
