What is Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) was originally part of a much older operation called the biliopancreatic diversion. By itself, laparoscopic gastric sleeve resection is a relatively new operation that was introduced to the United States in 2007. Through five or six small incisions, surgeon will use a stapling device to permanently remove 70 percent of the volume of the stomach. The result is a slender tube in the shape of a banana that maintains the natural openings leading to and from this new tubular “stomach.” No surgery is performed on the intestines. Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is the best option for those who can not go for vertical bypass surgery because of health problem like high obesity. Within a month you will realize the effect of vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery.

Why Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy?

The Vertical Gastrectomy is a reasonable solution to morbid obesity (BMI greater than 60Kg/M2). It can usually be done laparoscopically in patients weighing over 500 pounds. The stomach restriction that occurs allows these patients to lose more than 100 pounds and in many patients more than 200 pounds. This weight loss allows significant improvement in health and effectively "downstages" a patient to a lower risk group. Once the patients BMI is lower (35-40) they can return to the operating room for the "second stage" of the procedure, which can either be the Duodenal Switch, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or even a LapBand.

Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery Procedure

Vertical sleeve Gastrectomy surgery procedure generates weight loss solely through gastric restriction (reduced stomach volume). The stomach is restricted by stapling and dividing it vertically and removing more than 85% of it. This part of the procedure is not reversible. The stomach that remains is shaped like a very slim banana and measures from 1-5 ounces (30-150cc), depending on the surgeon performing the procedure. The nerves to the stomach and the outlet valve (pylorus) remain intact with the idea of preserving the functions of the stomach while drastically reducing the volume. By comparison, in a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach is divided, not removed, and the pylorus is excluded. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass stomach can be reconnected (reversed) if necessary. Note that there is no intestinal bypass with this procedure, only stomach reduction.  The lack of an intestinal bypass avoids potentially costly, long term complications such as marginal ulcers, vitamin deficiencies and intestinal obstructions.
