Gastric sleeve (Laparascopic) or Sleeve Gastrectomy is recognised as the gold standard of weight loss surgery. This is a keyhole procedure where a section of the stomach pouch is removed, significantly reducing the size of the stomach, and therefore giving the sensation of feeling comfortably full after eating a smaller amount of food, and also making you feel fuller for longer. The procedure generally results in no pain or discomfort whatsoever.
Research shows that a gastric sleeve consistently achieves greater weight loss than the gastric band and also has significant impacts on reduction of other obesity related medical conditions such as diabetes. Patients that proceed with the gastric sleeve loose between 30-40% more weight than patients who undertake the gastric band surgery.
Life Weight Loss Centre’s medical director, Dr Durmush, has pioneered unique methods in the gastric sleeve. These techniques have allowed Dr Durmush to achieve significantly lower complication rates less then 0.5% when the international acceptance leak rate is 2.6%. Dr Durmush teaches his technique to surgeons internationally.
