Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Sleeve gastrectomies -- better known as "Gastric Sleeve Surgeries" -- are the most common type of bariatric weight loss procedures and now make up more than 60% of all such procedures in the United States. Dr. Sergey Terushkin, a renowned leader in the bariatric surgery field, performs gastric sleeve procedures regularly using a minimally invasive, laparoscopic technique.
What is a Gastric Sleeve Surgery? During a gastric sleeve surgery, Dr. Terushkin will make five keyhole-sized incisions to remove roughly 80% of the left side the stomach, leaving the stomach roughly the size and shape of a banana. In addition to this reducing the body's capacity for intake and decreasing appetite, the segment of the stomach which is removed also houses hormone producing cells, thereby decreasing cravings and hunger.
