Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
Vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery, also known as the gastric sleeve, involves partial removal of the stomach. The reduced stomach volume restricts the amount of food that can be eaten. Additionally, eliminating part of the stomach reduces the hormone that stimulates appetite.
