Summary

Using laparoscopic technique, the provider reduces the size of the stomach by removing the bulk of the stomach in a vertical fashion. This procedure leaves a long, cylindrical stomach without the need to reroute the digestive tract or create a bypass. The provider performs this procedure as a single procedure or as the first stage of two procedures to treat morbid obesity in high–risk patients.
