Gastric Sleeve Surgery
also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is quickly becoming the most popular weight loss surgery in Louisiana. This minimally invasive, laparoscopic, procedure takes only one hour to perform and offers patients a quick recovery time. The gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure; it limits the amount of food you can eat but doesn’t significantly alter the anatomy or reroute the intestines. Most sleeve patients report that they feel less hungry throughout the day and feel full after eating only a small amount of food. Current research has shown excellent results. Patients can lose up to 64% of their excess weight within 12 months and see improvements in their weight related health conditions. *These are individual results. No outcome is guaranteed. The surgeons at The Surgical Specialists of Louisiana perform numerous procedures daily.
