Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy in Combination with Hiatal Hernia Repair Yields Positive Outcomes
According to recent studies, patients who undergo Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) in combination with a Hiatal Hernia (HH) repair have improvement in Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) symptoms. Successful weight loss can be achieved with no reflux symptoms when HH is repaired during LSG procedure.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico
For people who have been unsuccessful at losing enough weight to become candidates for gastric bypass surgery, Roux-en-Y or biliopancreatic diversion weight loss methods, the gastric sleeve is a method that can be used to drop the excessive weight to become eligible for the other surgeries.
Sleeve gastrectomy surgery is a modern weight loss laparoscopic procedure. The process involves removing about 85% of the patient’s stomach, and leaves a sleeve-shaped tube of a stomach remaining. Individuals can eat about one ounce per meal once the surgery has been completed, which is about half a cup of solid food. The majority of the hormones which stimulate the feeling of hunger produced by the stomach are also removed in the surgery, which leads to eating less. Also, with the smaller stomach, the individual eats less because they become full faster, and then will begin to lose weight rather quickly.
The anticipated weight loss from a sleeve gastrectomy surgery is between 60 and 80% of your extra weight. This means most patients lose less weight than individuals undergoing gastric bypass surgery, but more than those who use gastric banding. Most people who undergo a sleeve gastrectomy surgery weight too much for other forms of weight loss surgeries, and are likely to require a second type of weight loss surgery once the initial weight is lost with the sleeve procedure.
