Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) also known as parietal gastrectomy or just sleeve gastrectomy is a method of bariatric surgery offered at SaiShree Hospital, a reputed place for obesity surgery in Pune.

How is VSG carried out?

Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy in Pune is often carried out by our expert surgeons of SaiShree Hospital as the first step of bariatric surgery, especially for the patients with very high BMI. During this laparoscopic procedure, 85% of stomach is removed and only a banana or tubular shaped portion is left intact. As the stomach becomes much smaller, the quantum of food intake also comes down. Moreover, with a trimmed stomach, the secretion of Ghrelin, the hunger hormone, also drastically comes down and thereby contributes towards weight loss.

Benefits of VSG

Invariably most of the patients witness a reduction of 50 – 60% of loss in excess weight in a span of 2 years. Additionally, many patients with diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, back pain, urinary medical issues see a reduction of symptoms after VSG.
