Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Raleigh

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (or vertical sleeve gastrectomy) is a restrictive weight loss operation. By creating a small narrow stomach, we reduce your caloric intake and create an earlier sense of fullness after eating. This procedure removes 80% of the stomach and offers neurohormonal changes that help to reduce the feeling of hunger.

Typical Results

While weight loss varies among patients, early clinical studies show weight loss averages around 55-65% of their excess weight within the first 24 months. Each patient must adhere to recommended lifestyle changes to assure long term success.
