Sleeve gastrectomy in Turkey


Obesity is one of the most common diseases worldwide

Obesity is not just a casual problem that is easy to treat

It has only become classified in some countries, such as America and Japan, as a type of physical disability

hear about gastric sleeve operations.

Gastric sleeve or gastric sleeve surgery is the best way to fight obesity and lose weight

It is the safest solution because it has very important and many advantages


What is the gastric sleeve operation? (stomach cut) 

This operation depends on the removal of part of the stomach by about 80%, leaving a thin part of it in the form of a “banana” whose width does not exceed 90 mm.

Its main objective is to restrict the amount of food entering and it does not have any effects on digestion, metabolism and absorption
, and it also has a very positive role in hormonal terms (hunger hormone secretions).

and metabolism at the same time, as the removed part of the stomach is the part that produces the hormone “ghrelin” that causes hunger. Which reduces the amount of appetite-stimulating hormone in the blood and discourages appetite for food


The types of gastric sleeve surgery are divided into surgical (open) or laparoscopic in terms of the technique used

And in terms of the size of the stomach removed to partial and complete

It is worth noting that there are common names for this operation, such as cutting the stomach, reducing the stomach, and all of them are intended to be the sleeve gastrectomy process.

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy  

During the endoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, about eighty percent of the stomach is removed, and a narrow “tube” or “sleeve” is left. The intestine is not removed or bypassed during the gastric sleeve process. The endoscopy is purified
. The specialist doctor makes incisions on both sides of the abdomen, and through these incisions he inserts endoscopes and instruments.

Through the screen, he cuts the part to be removed and takes it out of the body and sews the stomach well. The operation is carried out under general anesthesia and in a session that does not exceed five hours.


Gastric sleeve benefits

Several studies have shown that sleeve gastrectomy is very effective in treating diabetes, high blood pressure, and other medical conditions associated with morbid obesity.

This process also has positive effects on many diseases and health conditions, including:

Heart patients.


high fat;

Breathing stops and suffocation during sleep.

type 2 diabetes mellitus

High body mass index to between 30-35 kilograms per square meter, with difficulty controlling sugar levels, or the presence of metabolic syndrome.

How is a gastric bypass operation performed?

Tube stomach surgery is performed through the endoscope, where the doctor makes four to five incisions in the abdomen, and the operation takes about 30 to 45 minutes and is linked according to the patient’s condition and the operations he underwent previously, and the recovery period after the operation does not exceed two to three days


After gastric sleeve surgery

The patient stays in the hospital for one night after the operation, where the patient feels some nausea after the operation, so he is treated with anti-nausea medications and pain relievers.

The patient begins to drink small amounts of water and liquid foods the morning after the operation, and these quantities are gradually increased if the patient accepts food without vomiting and nausea, to reach a complete liquid diet.

After the patient is discharged from the hospital, a nutritional diet is determined for him, which includes water and fluids, and the diet continues for a short period after the operation, and the liquid diet is gradually converted to a normal diet.

After gastric sleeve surgery, patients should stick to eating low-fat and sugar-free food, including lean protein sources and non-fibrous vegetables.

After the surgery, there are some tips that can help you stay on the right track, and ensure you recover from the disease, and among these tips are the following:

Use a blender or food processor to puree foods.

Learn to recognize the difference between hunger (physical) and appetite (mental/emotional)

Don’t overeat – this will stretch your stomach.

Chew food slowly.

Avoid foods with trans fats, fried, processed and fast foods.

Avoid dehydration and drink water regularly

Eat foods that contain vitamins and supplements.

Avoid alcohol, tea, coffee and smoking after the operation for at least a month
