The Gastric Sleeve, also known as the sleeve gastrectomy, is one of our most popular procedures at Evolve. During the gastric sleeve procedure, a skilled bariatric surgeon transforms the stomach into a long skinny sleeve using laparoscopic surgery. By reducing the size of your stomach, you are able to feel full more quickly while eating and stay fuller longer.
Benefits of the Gastric Sleeve*
- Lose as much as 60-83% of excess weight over 1-2 years
- Go home day of surgery
- Be back to work within a few days of the procedure
- Improve high blood pressure and cholesterol
- Reduce sleep apnea and risk of diabetes
