LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY
The laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery
or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy(VSG) is a restrictive type of weight loss surgery that permanently reducesthe size of the stomach. It promotes weightloss by restricting food intake.At Advanced-BMI, we remove approximately80% of the stomach along the greatercurvature, leaving only a small tube whichserves as the new stomach pouch.
This long pouch extends from the entrance tothe stomach (esophagus) to the exit or outletof the stomach (pyloric valve).The procedure helps to limit the amount of food consumed by reducing the overall size of the stomach. The Gastric Sleeve also controls hunger by removing the partof the stomach that produces the hunger stimulating hormone Gherlin.

Permanent reduction in the size of the stomach
No implant of a foreign medical device
