The surgeons use a stapling instrument to form a small stomach sleeve while the rest of the stomach is removed during the sleeve gastrectomy procedure. Patients have a sense of fullness and appetite/hunger is reduced as a result of this surgery, resulting in weight loss and considerable benefits in health.
