Lap Sleeve Gastrectomy
Also called stomach stapling, this operation involves removal of a large portion of the stomach. The remaining stomach forms a narrow tube of 100-150 ml. This leads to a marked reduction in hunger and fullness after a small meal. It has been shown to provide good weight loss (60% or more of excess body weight) with minimal side-effects. It also causes remarkable improvement in many obesity related diseases like diabetes, high BP, respiratory problems etc. Vitamin and mineral supplements may be required after the operation depending upon your condition and lab results.
