Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (BHP)

USD $12,428

This procedure is recommended for clinically severe obesity with a BMI of over 35 with a serious health problem linked to obesity. Such health problems could be type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or severe sleep apnea (when breathing stops for short periods during sleep).

The sleeve gastrectomy is an increasingly popular surgery that is more effective than banding and has been found to be as safe, or safer than, gastric band and gastric bypass, according to a recent study. The study, published by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, found that patients who had a gastric sleeve surgery experienced around a 30 percent drop in their body mass index (BMI) after one year, while patients who had the gastric band operation experienced only a 20 percent reduction. Along with its improved weight loss results, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy has gained popularity due to its less intensive follow-up when compared to laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding.
