The gastric sleeve procedure, also known as a sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgery that decreases the size of the stomach to encourage weight loss. About 80 percent of the stomach is surgically removed, leaving a tube-like portion of the stomach in place, and removing the rest permanently. This dramatic decrease in stomach size means the individual can only eat about
half a cup at a time and restricts the volume of food that can be eaten, which in turn decreases the calories that can be taken in, leading to weight loss.
