Is Gastric Sleeve Surgery right for you?
Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery) is an option for people who cannot lose weight by other means, or who suffer from serious health problems related to obesity.

Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery) reduces the size of the stomach which causes patients to feel full sooner and lowers the production of hunger-inducing hormones, leading to significant long-term weight loss; hopefully resulting to improved health.

Candidates for this procedure are generally between the ages of 18-65, have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater (defined by the National Institutes of Health as approximately 100 pounds over ideal body weight), or a BMI of 35-40 with at least one condition related to obesity. These conditions include:
 
  • Diabetes
  • Heart and circulation problems, including high blood pressure
  • Arthritis
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Depression
 
Our team
The bariatric team at Jennie Stuart will educate and guide you through every step of the procedure, and partner with you to help with this long-term commitment to a healthier lifestyle.

Our highly skilled team, headed by Dr. Gerame Wells, MD, FACS, comprises Misty Cook, APRN, a bariatric nurse coordinator and a registered dietitian.
