Gastric Sleeve (Sleeve Gastrectomy)

 In Sleeve Gastrectomy, the stomach is divided lengthwise and a narrow, banana-shaped tube (sleeve) is created by removing 80% or more of the stomach. The gastric tube is much smaller than the stomach's natural size, thus restricting the amount of food that can be eaten at a given time. The remainder of the stomach is removed and, since no bypass is created, absorption of nutrients remains normal. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and has been reported to produce a loss of 50% or more of excess weight.
