Video Interview – Gastric Sleeve @ Metropolitan Hospital


The gastric sleeve is a new procedure that triggers weight loss by the limitation of the food intake. By this procedure, the surgeon removes approx. 75% of the stomach, so the new stomach is shaped like a tube or like a “sleeve”. The volume of the remaining stomach will be approx. 100-150 ml. The gastric sleeve is considered the operation with the best risk-benefit ratio. It provides a long-term and stable weight loss, comparable with the one at the gastric bypass, but without its disadvantages.
