What is Laparoscopic Gastric Band to Sleeve?

Laparoscopic gastric band surgery is a minimally invasive restrictive bariatric surgery that limits the amount of food that the stomach can hold. When this surgery fails to achieve significant weight loss, your surgeon may suggest a revision surgery to a gastric sleeve surgery. This is a restrictive procedure that involves the creation of a sleeve-shaped section by stapling the stomach. By this method, about 75-80% of the stomach is removed.
