For obese individuals wanting to lose weight, gastric sleeve surgery is a revolutionary surgical approach to help people lose weight and change the relationship they have with food. In terms of invasiveness, gastric sleeve surgery is in the same category as gastric bypass surgery.

Why Should I Have Gastric Sleeve Surgery in India?

To perform a gastric sleeve surgery, a surgeon will make a vertical cut into the patient’s abdomen to reach the stomach. Some surgeons also perform gastric sleeve surgeries using a laparascope. The benefit of using a laparascope is that the surgeon does not need need to make such a large cut into the belly. Instead, the surgeon only needs to make a series of small slit-style cuts into the patient’s stomach.

After the surgeon makes the abdominal incision, the surgeon removes approximately half of the patient’s stomach, leaving a thin sleeve of stomach. Because this stomach sleeve is half the size of a regular stomach, a gastric sleeve recipient can only ingest limited amounts of food. The metropolitan centers in India all have clinics that offer gastric sleeve surgery to interested patients. Cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Chennai all have international-quality clinics with experienced surgeons.

Depending on where the patient goes, getting a gastric sleeve surgery may get really expensive. In India, the same procedure can be performed by highly-experienced bariatric surgeons at a fraction of the cost compared to Canada, the United States, or Australia.

After the patient recovers from their gastric sleeve operation, they will need to eat soft foods for up to a month to allow their stomach to heal.
