Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
This video demonstrates the surgical technique for performing a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy for weight loss. This operation is simpler than the Gastric Bypass and does not involve placing a foreign body as with the Lap-Band. The weight loss is as effective as seen with the gastric bypass although a little slower. This is the only operation that is not reversible and can cause an increase in heartburn (GERD) initially. The reflux usually resolves with time as the stomach heals and as the weight comes off.
