Gastric Sleeve (GS) – Laparoscopic sleeve resection of the stomach
Gastric Sleeve is one of the most effective and currently most recommended surgical operations for weight loss. The surgeon removes about 75-80 percent of the stomach, leaving the stomach in a tube or “sleeve”. This procedure works through several mechanisms. First, the new stomach bag has a much smaller volume than a normal stomach and significantly helps reduce the amount of food you can eat. The stomach still retains all normal digestive functions, but has a limited ability to eat. This means that the patient feels full after eating a small amount. These operations not only eliminate obesity, their goal is to improve or complete remission of concomitant diseases.
KCM Clinic is one of the few specialised hospitals in Central and Eastern Europe that uses modern 3D laparoscopy technology during bariatric operations. The latest 3D imaging techniques enable the highest quality image visualization and safety of the treatment. As a result, patients are operated with much greater accuracy and recover faster.
