Description

Join Maggie Steinbeisser, DO, as she discusses a new weight loss option for people who need to lose 100 or more pounds. The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure that will decrease hunger without altering absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Location: Avera Marshall | Classroom A & B third floor

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Overview

If you are overweight, bariatric surgery may be a choice for you.  Your healthcare provider may recommend it if you have a body mass index (BMI) higher than 40. A BMI of greater than 40 typically means that you are about 100 pounds overweight. One of the newer choices for bariatric surgery is called laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a surgery in which the surgeon removes approximately 85 percent of the stomach, shaping the remaining stomach into a tube or “sleeve.” This limits the amount of food that can be ingested at any given time without altering the normal absorption of vitamins and minerals. It also significantly decreases hunger by removing the part of the stomach that produces the main hunger stimulating hormone.
