Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure which removes approximately 85% of the stomach, and reshapes the remaining portion into a tube or “sleeve.” The result is a much smaller stomach which leaves you feeling less hunger and limits the amount of food you can take in. At PinnacleHealth, this procedure is performed by our specialized bariatric surgeons. Our surgeons use the latest in state-of-the-art laparoscopic technology, offering patients the least invasive methods and the best results.

Gastric sleeve surgery is considered a “restrictive” procedure, in that it reduces the size of meal portions your body can tolerate without changing the digestive process. However, a specialized diet and regimen of chewable and/or dissolvable vitamin supplements is recommended following the procedure.
