Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy


How does the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy compare to the other surgeries?

  • Simple operation with low mortality risk.
  • Technically easy to perform with low peri-operative risks.
  • Minimal short-term and long-term complication rates.
  • Short-term risks of staple line bleeding or leakage are very rare.
  • The only long-term risk is GERD in some patients.
  • Weight loss comparable with the gastric bypass.
