Gastric Sleeve Benefits

The Gastric sleeve has many benefits including:

  1. A possible reduction in hunger
    1. By removing a large portion of the stomach, the hunger inducing hormone ghrelin is reduced. Reduced hunger is a potential benefit that many patients achieve, but not all.
  2. Less time under anesthesia because of a shorter operating time
  3. Intestines are not re-routed
  4. Dumping syndrome does not occur.
    1. Compared to the bypass, the pylorus remains intact after a sleeve gastrectomy, which gives sugars time to digest, avoiding dumping syndrome.
  5. Weight is lost over 18 months.
  6. An average of 60% of excess weight is lost.
