Welcome to gastricsleeves.org, a website developed by Center of Excellence bariatric surgeon, Dr. Craig Chang. The purpose of this website is to offer bariatric patients and those considering the gastric sleeve a comprehensive overview of the fastest-growing bariatric procedure in the United States. The gastric sleeve has become very popular because of the excellent surgical outcomes and it is a straightforward, easy to understand procedure.
The gastric sleeve, also known as the sleeve gastrectomy, is increasingly recognized amongst the general public. In the past, other bariatric surgeries such as the gastric bypass and Lap-Band® were synonymous with weight loss surgery. This website aims to bring gastric sleeve to the forefront of peoples minds when they consider bariatric surgery.
The gastric sleeve rose to prominence as a major bariatric surgery just a few years ago when insurance companies began to cover the procedure. Today, it is the second most performed bariatric procedure in the United States and is rapidly rising in popularity.
The gastric sleeve may not be right for everyone, but we look forward to offering you the information that you need to make the decision about gastric sleeve and your own weight loss surgery journey.
