In Turkey, sleeve gastrectomy (stomach reduction) surgery is a surgical method applied in morbid obesity and metabolic surgery. In the surgery, a large part of the stomach is removed with
a closed surgical method and the stomach is reduced in volume. The separated part of the stomach is removed from the body. As in gastric bypass, the separated stomach is not left in the body. Since the appearance of the remaining stomach resembles a tube, it is called sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
How is Gastric Sleeve Operation Performed in Turkey?
In the gastric sleeve, a portion of the stomach is removed and reduced in volume. Smaller stomach size creates a feeling of satiety in the patient. In Turkey, the procedure is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Approximately 80% of the patient’s stomach is taken by entering through small incisions on the abdomen with a surgical surveillance camera and surgical instruments.
The operation takes place between 1-2 hours on average. After the procedure, people are discharged after being followed in the hospital for an average of 2 days.
