Gastric sleeve is a surgical procedure used to treat obesity. This procedure is performed by experienced surgeons at Groruddalsklinikken, a renowned clinic in Norway. Gastric sleeve, also known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, involves the removal of a large portion of the stomach to reduce its capacity and limit the amount of food that can be consumed.
The procedure is usually performed using peephole surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery. This means that patients can have less pain, faster healing time and less visible scars. During the procedure, the stomach is shaped into a narrow vertical tube by removing approximately 80-85% of its original size. This limits the amount of food that can be eaten and leads to an early feeling of satiety.
Gastric sleeve has been shown to be effective for weight loss in people with severe obesity or those suffering from obesity-related health problems. Studies have shown that this procedure can lead to significant weight loss in the short and long term. In addition, it may help improve or reverse certain health problems associated with obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
Before you undergo a gastric sleeve procedure at Groruddalsklinikken, you will be thoroughly evaluated by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare personnel. This includes doctors, nutritionists and psychologists who will assess your general health, weight history, dietary habits and psychological well-being. This is important to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the operation and to help you achieve the best possible result.
After the operation, you will be followed up closely by the medical team at Groruddalsklinikken. You will receive guidance on the dietary changes, physical activity and lifestyle adjustments necessary to maintain your weight loss and improve your long-term health. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress and provide support throughout your journey.
It is important to note that the gastric sleeve is not a miracle cure for obesity. It takes commitment and lifestyle changes to achieve lasting weight loss and improved health. It is also important to follow the medical advice from the professional team at Groruddalsklinikken to avoid complications and ensure the best possible result.
