Gastric sleeve surgery is a minimally-invasive surgery for losing weight that involves making six small incisions in the abdomen to remove approximately 75% of the stomach. The remaining portion of the stomach takes the shape of a narrow “sleeve” which holds much less food. Bariatric sleeve surgery helps patients lose weight by restricting food intake and decreasing hormones affecting hunger.
At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we exclusively perform the Gastric Sleeve procedure for weight loss. Although there are other surgical weight loss options (like Gastric Bypass and Lap-Band), our bariatric surgeon, Dr. Eibes, performs the Gastric Sleeve procedure for a wide variety of reasons.
As a trusted, accredited weight loss center, we offer a variety of weight loss services before and after surgery to help you meet and maintain your weight loss goals.
Our comprehensive weight loss clinic team includes weight management providers, registered dietitians, and behavioral health experts, who work together to ensure each patient feels prepared and supported in all aspects of their weight loss journey. With both our surgical and non-surgical weight loss programs, we work with you to help modify behaviors so that you can lose weight and keep it off permanently.
