Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy


In a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon creates a small, tube-shaped stomach by removing the greater portion of the stomach through keyhole incisions.

The resulting pouch, about the shape and size of a banana, is larger than the pouch created during Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

By removing the outer aspect of the stomach, the majority of the cells that produce the hunger hormone ghrelin are removed and patients feel less hungry.
