Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy to bypass
What is Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy to Bypass?
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a minimally invasive bariatric procedure that creates a sleeve-shaped section by stapling the stomach. By this method, about 75-80% of the stomach is removed. This is a restrictive surgery that limits the amount of food that the stomach can hold, encouraging you to lose weight.
When you are unable to achieve the required weight loss outcomes, your doctor may suggest a revision bypass surgery. The bypass surgery is a restrictive as well as malabsorptive surgery that involves reducing the size of the stomach by stapling it and connecting it to the small intestine by bypassing a portion of the intestine.
