Sleeve Gastrectomy is performed under general anesthesia by laparoscopic method, i.e. According to the patient's condition, the camera and necessary treatment tools are sent into the abdomen through 1 to 5 small holes in the skin. With the help of a camera, the surgeon can see the operation area at high clarity from a monitor and perform the insertion easily.
A calibration tube is placed at the entrance of the stomach; the diameter of the esophagus. This tube guides us to accurately determine the area where it should be cut. In this way, undesirable situations such as blockage or excessive stenosis are prevented. Then 80% of the stomach is cut off by a special cutting-congealer tool called Stapler. When the process is finished, the calibration tube is removed and the drainage system is inserted and thus the operation is terminated.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is an operation that lasts an average of 1 hour. The hospital stay after Sleeve Gastrectomy is 1 to 3 days. Those who have gastric sleeve surgery become able to do their simple daily tasks 1 week after the operation and can return to their normal lives after an average of 1 month.
