Gastric sleeve procedure helps bariatric patients lose weight, improve blood pressure and diabetes

Posted Apr 01 2009 2:44pm
I've previously posted about the health advantages of bariatric surgery. The gastric sleeve is a relatively new approach. It involves re-shaping the stomach into a narrow tube, or sleeve. Unlike the gastric bypass or the band, the sleeve does not involve any “re-routing” of bowel or implanting foreign bodies into the abdominal cavity.

The gastric sleeve can help you get your energy back, lower your cholesterol and improve both your diabetes and high blood pressure.

Alex Gandsas, M.D., M.B.A., head of the Division Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Sinai, will speak at a free lecture about this novel approach on Monday, April 6, at 6 p.m., in Zamoiski Auditorium at Sinai Hospital. To RSVP, please call 410-601-4486.
