About the offer

Gastric sleeve surgery is an effective method of treating diseases associated with the problem of excess weight. The surgeon removes up to 75% of the stomach during the operation. Usually, the stomach of a healthy person has a volume of 1000 cm3. After the procedure, approximately 150-200 cm3 remains. That leads to the stomach taking the form of a tube or "sleeve" in which much less food can fit. As a result, a person feels full when taking five to six times smaller portions. In addition, removing part of the stomach reduces the hormone ghrelin in the blood, also called the "hunger hormone. "The gastric sleeve operation is performed under general anesthesia without major incisions (laparoscopically). After the anesthesia injection, the stomach is cut, and a long, thin sleeve is formed, resembling a banana in size and shape. The sleeve is created using a unique tube (probe), 1. 5-2 cm in diameter, placed in the stomach through the mouth. First, the stomach is sutured around this tube with special clips. Then, the remaining part of the stomach is removed through a small puncture in the anterior abdominal wall. The duration of this procedure is from 40 to 60 minutes. Weight loss after sleeve resection of the stomach occurs slowly and takes 7 to 8 months. It helps limit the stomach's capacity, causing the patient to eat less and feel full earlier. It is considered one of the most effective treatments for morbid obesity, as it helps control appetite and satiety, facilitates significant weight loss, and makes it easier for the patient to modify their eating habits.

Carrer de Vilana, 12, 08022 Barcelona Spain


When is the surgery indicated?

A patient with a BMI of over 35 is considered a candidate for this surgery, although other factors should also be considered. Patients with severe heart disease or a mental disorder that prevents them from understanding the surgery's complexity and committing to actively participate in the weight loss process with an overall change in habits are not candidates for this surgery. This operation is also not recommended in some patients with eating disorders.

When can I return to sport after the operation?

A gentle, progressive return to physical activity is recommended. Patients typically start to practice controlled sports after 3 or 4 months. After a year, patients feel much lighter and can usually practice sports. After a year or a year and a half, the patient reaches his or her definitive weight, although controls are required for at least 5 years.

How do I lose weight after?

Weight loss is faster in the first 6 months, losing 60-70% of the total target. The patient gains mobility, finds clothes easier, and increases his or her self-esteem.

How is the intervention performed?

Sleeve gastrectomy is typically performed laparoscopically through five small incisions. This procedure does not require the patient to be opened up. During the surgery, a general surgeon will cut and suture the stomach to make it narrower. This will reduce the stomach's capacity by 60-80%, transforming it into a thin gastric tube. The patient will become full quickly and will eat less, sometimes up to 90% less. This is a permanent procedure and cannot be reversed.
