Sleeve Gastrectomy in Turkey


Sleeve Gastrectomy a surgical procedure that limits the amount of consumed food by reducing the size of the stomach, thus helping to lose weight. Gastric sleeve surgery is performed to help reduce the risk of health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes associated with excess weight. Gastric sleeve surgeries are usually applied after trying to lose weight with methods such as diet and exercise.

Before Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Various laboratory tests and examinations are performed to determine whether or not sleeve gastrectomy is appropriate. Your doctor will have recommendations regarding eating, drinking, and drug use before the surgery.

How is Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery Performed?

Gastric sleeve surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and small incisions are made in the abdomen. Approximately 75-80% of the stomach is removed and the stomach takes the form of a long tube. The operation takes about 2 hours.

After Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Patients are discharged 2-3 days after sleeve gastrectomy surgery.

Since the stomach size is greatly reduced, a feeling of satiety will occur after eating a small amount of food. After sleeve gastrectomy, the diet starts with sugar-free liquids. Generally, patients can start exercising 4 weeks after the surgery. An appropriate exercise program is recommended.

As a result, it is possible to lose approximately 60% or more of your excess weight within two years, depending on your lifestyle.

My aunt had a knee replacement surgery on both her knees and we've seen an incredible progress eventhough it's only been 2 weeks. Doctor is amazing, hospitality is another level, nurses and all procedures are highly professional. As someone who has been to many big hospitals in Turkey, I must say this one is by far the best cause they're health-oriented as opposed to money oriented. Definitely recommend it to anyone especially for orthopedic surgery and physiotherapy.
