Sleeve gastrectomy at Angeles Hospital Tijuana, is performed laparoscopically under general anesthesia in a hospital operating room. In rare cases complications may cause the surgeon to opt for a more traditional ‘open’ bariatric surgery, requiring a larger incision in the patient’s abdomen to gain access to the stomach.
In the more normal 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.’
Our 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.
