Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as Gastric Sleeve Resection or Sleeve Gastrectomy, is one of the restrictive procedures our North Texas team provides. The procedure uses stomach stapling to create a gastric “sleeve.” The stomach is stapled vertically into two sections: one section on the left (the “sleeve”) and another on the right. The stomach’s natural connection to the small intestine is at the bottom of the sleeve; in gastric sleeve surgery, this connection is left intact. Meanwhile, the right-hand portion of the stomach is removed. The procedure therefore reduces the stomach’s capacity while leaving the intestines intact.
