Welcome to the Gastric Sleeve surgery Center of Dr. Huacuz, located in Tijuana, Mexico. Gastric sleeve surgery is rapidly becoming the first choice among many expert surgeons in controlling obesity and is believed will soon take the place of gastric bypass surgery as the “gold standard”.
The sleeve gastrectomy has exploded, and is an alternative for the management and control of obesity, the results have been very good, and although it takes little time to sit using this intervention is being used as first choice for many.
Gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy, is a procedure in which part of the stomach is removed leaving the remainder in the form of sleeve or tube which connects the esophagus to the small intestine.
The gastric sleeve helps in reducing stomach area up to 70%, being about the size of a tennis ball or a banana (remembering the way it is given to the stomach).
Unlike more invasive procedures such as gastric bypass or duodenal switch surgery does not change the digestive system. This result bring faster recovery, fewer problems and malabsorption fewer complications.
For patients with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 50 gastric sleeve is the first option before making a riskier surgery such as gastric bypass or duodenal switch.
