What about Gastric Sleeve?
How does Gastric Banding compare to Gastric Sleeve (Sleeve Gastrectomy)? Sleeve Gastrectomy (also known as Gastric Sleeve surgery) is a relatively new approach to weight loss surgery. With Gastric Sleeve, using a small stapling device, around two thirds of the stomach is removed laparoscopically, via a small tube. Unlike Gastric Banding Procedure, Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery is irreversible.
