Gastric Sleeve Operation

The operation is performed by key hole surgery and removes around 60 % of the stomach using a stapler. This creates a small residual stomach and satiety is achieved through small portions. This procedure is the most common weight loss surgery performed in Australia in 2020 - 2023.

The patient usually stays in hospital for 2-3 nights.
