This video demonstrate Bariatric Surgery Laparoscopic sleeve Gastrectomy Step by Step Video by Dr R K Mishra. Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 15% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. The result is a sleeve or tube like structure. Most gastric bypass surgery is laparoscopic, which means the surgeon makes small cuts. That makes for shorter recovery time. Most people stay in the hospital 2 to 3 days, and get back to normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks. If the surgery must be "open," meaning the surgeon has to make a larger cut, healing takes longer. In gastric sleeve surgery your surgeon creates a small stomach "sleeve” using a stapling device and the rest of your stomach is permanently removed. Your stomach’s size will be reduced by approx 75%. This procedure may be recommended if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more as this indicates you are at least 100 pounds over your recommended weight. It may also be advised for you if you have a BMI of 35 or more and also a serious medical condition that might improve with weight loss. Some of these conditions are sleep apnoea, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. A gastric sleeve surgery may also be used to treat extremely morbidly obese people (with a BMI of 60 or above). There is no rearrangement of the bowel with a gastric sleeve surgery therefore dumping, which may occur to gastric bypass patients when their undigested stomach contents are “dumped” into their small intestine too quickly, should not a problem. Also a sleeve gastrectomy doesn’t affect the absorption of food, so nutritional deficiencies are less likely to occur
