What is Gastric Sleeve Dominican Republic?

The Gastric Sleeve  Dominican Republic Surgery (also known as the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy) is a bariatric treatment that involves the removal of 75-80% of the stomach. It is now the most popular bariatric procedure in the Dominican Republic and around the world. Within one year of surgery, patients can anticipate to lose 60-70 percent of their excess weight, as well as remission or improvement of obesity-related health issues such as:

  • Diabetes mellitus type II
  • Hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Joint pain
  • and Hyperlipidemia

At Obesidad y Bariátrica , the Gastric Sleeve Dominican Republic success rate is around 80-90 percent with lifestyle adjustments. Because of the decrease in gastric capacity and ghrelin (hunger hormone) production, patients have less of a desire to eat. Patients report feeling less hungry in the majority of cases, but not all of them.
