Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

The Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) is the most performed bariatric procedure where 80% of the stomach is removed. This limits the amount of food consumed and significantly reduces hunger. The VSG is performed laparoscopically and takes less than an hour to perform. This is performed on an outpatient basis or sometimes with an overnight hospital stay depending on the health condition of the patient.

Weight loss can be from 50-70% of one’s excess body weight anywhere from 12 to 18 months after surgery. Given that the VSG is technically less complex, it is an excellent operation for patients with high risk medical conditions or as a bridge to another bariatric procedure while still achieving effective weight loss and improvement of obesity related medical conditions.
