Gastric sleeve is performed in patients with a body mass index above 40% or in patients with a body mass index of 30% but who have conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma.
If we have to give an average percentage, approximately 80% of your stomach/lung is removed in this surgery.
With gastric sleeve surgery, with a small amount of food, you achieve a feeling of satiety. In addition to the volume reduction effect, the removal of part of the stomach, especially the part we call the fundus, offers improvement and in many cases complete cure for diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol disease which are particularly related diseases with obesity.
To perform these operations in a short and safe time, high-tech materials are used. The most important is the material we call a stapler.
Before the person undergoes an operation to reduce the stomach, all the necessary analyzes and controls must be performed. In these analyzes, the doctor assesses whether the patient is physiologically and psychologically ready for gastric sleeve surgery. After gastric sleeve surgery, which is an important surgical procedure, the person will get rid of weight-related disorders.
