Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy, Minimally Invasive Sleeve Surgery - Arif Ahmad, MD

Sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of bariatric surgery that shrinks the stomach to approximately 15% of its original size, the new stomach is often compared to being the size of a banana.
