What is a gastric sleeve?
(upbeat synthesizer music) – So that the normal
anatomy of the stomach is that the stomach is
essentially a big sack that expands as we eat food. With weight loss surgery, and specifically the sleeve gastrectomy, we’re reducing or restricting
the size of the stomach. So instead of having a large sack, we turn it into a thin tube, that’s about 10-20% of the
size of the normal stomach. MedicalCityHospital.com
