VSG is a restrictive surgical weight loss procedure that limits the amount of food you can eat, helping you feel full sooner. In this bariatric surgery, a portion the stomach is removed which limits the amount of food you can eat. The surgeon divides the stomach along its vertical length to create a long, slender pouch (or sleeve). This restrictive procedure results in very effective weight loss.
At our Bariatric Surgery Center, a VSG surgery is performed using a laparoscope rather than through a large open incision. The laparoscopic method allows the surgeon to make a series of much smaller incisions reducing abdominal pain and lowering the risk of wound infection and hernia.
