What is Gastric Sleeve Plication?
An innovative, restrictive bariatric procedure, gastric sleeve plication surgery reduces the size of the stomach by creating an internal fold in the organ. Capacity is cut by about 75 percent, allowing patients to satisfy their hunger much faster with considerably less food.
Unlike gastric bypass surgery or gastric sleeve surgery, gastric sleeve plication surgery does not require the rerouting or re-sectioning of the digestive tract. Because healthy tissue is sutured together rather than removed, patients can lose weight quickly without permanently compromising their digestive ability.
