The gastric sleeve is performed by a minimally invasive technique known as laparoscopy which allows the surgeon to operate though 3-5 very small abdominal incisions. During the procedure, a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving a small tube shaped pouch. The surgeon will insert a viewing tube contained a small camera and other small surgical tools into the tiny incisions to guide him as he removes a portion of the stomach which is sealed and closed. Patients get general anesthesia for the operation and it takes around 1.5 hours to perform.
