Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy involves stapling approximately 70-80 percent of the stomach's natural capacity without involving the intestinal tract.
An advantage of the sleeve gastrectomy is that the patient experiences a significant amount of restriction immediately after surgery without having to make manual adjustments as in gastric banding.
