What is Gastric Sleeve?

A definitive solution for substantial weight loss.

Gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves reducing the stomach by approximately 80%. This method not only limits the amount of food a patient can ingest but also impacts hormonal levels that control appetite and satiety.

Gastric sleeve has become an increasingly popular option for those seeking a definitive solution for substantial weight loss.

The Gastric Sleeve Procedure

The gastric sleeve procedure is a meticulous process that requires the skill and experience of a specialized surgeon. Dr. Hernán Fraga, trained as a general surgeon and later specialized in advanced laparoscopy and bariatric surgery, applies the most advanced techniques in this field. During surgery, a significant portion of the stomach is removed, leaving a tube or “sleeve” that restricts food intake. Thanks to laparoscopy, this operation is performed with minimal incisions, significantly reducing recovery time and scarring.
