Sleeve Gastrectomy - Obesity Surgery Guide
This is another procedure which falls into the ‘Restrictive' category. It is a new procedure and can be a good option for those people who for whichever reasons are unable to have gastric banding.
It can be performed as a single technique, or is more commonly used as part of gastric bypass or a duodenal switch. It is also known as a gastric sleeve resection. It appears to be a quicker and easier procedure than gastric bypass but as it is a relatively new procedure any long-term benefits and risks are still unknown.
