RISKS OF GASTRIC SLEEVE

No surgery is entirely safe and all surgical procedures carry risks. With gastric sleeve surgery fortunately, serious complications are relatively rare and not usually life threatening. Gastric sleeve surgery has a survival rate of 99.8%.
The risk factors should be considered but don’t forget untreated obesity, especially morbid obesity, carries a significant high risk of premature death itself.

In most cases, the benefits of surgery outweigh the risks, which are:

  • Staple line leaks
  • Bleeding
  • Stenosis/strictures
  • Digestion issues
  • Wound infection
  • Gallstones which are small stones, usually made of cholesterol can develop after surgery. In most cases, gallstones don’t cause any symptoms and can be treated with medication
  • Post op Blood Clots
