Sleeve Gastrectomy Weight Loss Surgery
One of the newest weight loss procedures, sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve surgery, involves surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach. The resulting smaller “sleeve”-shaped stomach restricts the amount of food your stomach can hold, helping you lose weight.
Sleeve gastrectomy requires an overnight hospital stay at North Kansas City Hospital.
