Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) comes with a unique feature, i.e., satisfying gastric restriction and appetite suppression. It is more of a procedure that offers physiological advantage than restrictive procedures like gastric banding. In this procedure, there isn't any alien material that is inserted into the stomach. Thus, it has no risks of migration, erosion and infection. There is reduced risk of dumping or peptic ulcer. In this procedure, we staple the stomach to make a vertical sleeve with the help of laparoscope and endo GIA staplers.

It offers considerable weight loss to the patients and resolution of co-morbidities.
