What is Gastric Sleeve ?
The Gastric Sleeve, also known as the sleeve gastrectomy, is one of our most popular procedures at Evolve. During the gastric sleeve procedure, a skilled bariatric surgeon transforms the stomach into a long skinny sleeve using laparoscopic surgery. By reducing the size of your stomach, you are able to feel full more quickly while eating and stay fuller longer.
Hernia Symptoms include:
Abdominal or groin pain
Bulges and/or swelling
Nausea and/or vomiting
Heartburn or acid reflux
The feeling that something inside the body is “stuck”
