Sleeve gastrectomy, a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical weight-loss procedure. This procedure can be performed Robotically, which involves inserting small instruments through multiple small incisions in the upper abdomen. During sleeve gastrectomy, about 80% of the stomach is removed, leaving a tube-shaped stomach about the size and shape of a banana.

Limiting the size of your stomach restricts the amount of food you can consume. In addition, the procedure prompts hormonal changes that assist with weight loss. These hormonal changes also help relieve conditions associated with being overweight, such as high blood pressure or heart disease.

Sleeve gastrectomy is done to help you lose excess weight and reduce your risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Infertility

Sleeve gastrectomy surgery could be an option for you if:

  • Your body mass index (BMI) is 37.5 or higher (morbid obesity).
  • Your BMI is 32.5 to 37.5 (obesity), and you have a serious weight-related health problem, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or severe sleep apnea. In some cases, you may qualify for specific weight-loss surgery if your BMI is 27.5 to 32.5 and you have serious weight-related health problems.

You must also be willing to make permanent changes to lead a healthier lifestyle. You may be required to participate in long-term follow-up plans that include monitoring your nutrition, lifestyle and behavior, and medical conditions.
