Sleeve Pro Blog

Welcome to the Sleeve Pro blog

In over 15 years in clinic we've met tens of thousands of patients, many of whom are interested in the gastric sleeve (laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) procedure. During those 15 years gastric sleeve has developed into the fastest growing weight loss surgery procedure in the world, having overtaken gastric band and gastric bypass. Through those thousands of sleeve consultations we've found that it is probably least understood procedure, and generally speaking we've found it to be over simplified.

This 'Sleeve Pro' blog is our response to patients' feedback that it's hard to find good, reliable information about the sleeve. In this series of blogs your Sleeve Pro will give you the inside track on everything you need to know about the gastric sleeve, including answers to your questions. From patient experiences, to surgical developments, to detailed technical information, you'll find it all here. If there is something missing that you want to see, just ask and the Sleeve Pro will provide it!

When most patients compare the band and the sleeve one of the attractions of the sleeve is that it is lower maintenance and requires fewer visit to the post-op clinic. So, shouldn't it be cheaper than the band? 28 February 2018 2:17pm
