Along with significant weight loss (recent studies show that patients lost an average of 55% of their excess weight), patients often experience dramatic improvements to their health, as well as an overall improvement in quality of life. These are all important benefits to bariatric surgery.
Below, you’ll find a more thorough description of these benefits and how a sleeve gastrectomy procedure may help you achieve and maintain your goals.
A clinical study of sleeve gastrectomy showed the following health improvements after sleeve gastrectomy.

|Type 2 Diabetes||56%||37%|
|High Blood Pressure||49%||29%|
|Obstructive Sleep Apnea||60%||33%|
Since the majority of sleeve gastrectomy procedures are performed using laparoscopic techniques, the minimally invasive surgery results in faster recovery with shorter hospital stays, smaller scars and less overall pain than comparable open surgical procedures.
