Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastrectomy, in very simple terms, involves removing a large part of the stomach so that it remains in the form of a tube. The aim is to reduce the volume of the stomach, which is a continuation of the oesophagus.

The Stomach

The stomach, which is like a continuation of the oesophagus, is shrunk by about 80% and food intake is restricted. As the part related to appetite is removed during the surgery, the patient starts to lose weight very quickly due to the reduced food intake and lost appetite.

Stomach reduction surgery is performed using laparoscopy, a closed surgical method. In this operation, which is one of the most effective methods in the fight against obesity, the intestines are not operated on.
