GastrectomyWhat is Gastrectomy?

  • Full gastrectomy – The entire stomach is removed by full gastrectomy.
  • Sleeve gastrectomy – The left stomach portion is removed with a sleeve gastrectomy. This is generally done during a weight loss surgery.

 Surgical Approaches for Gastrectomy

A gastrectomy may be performed using two distinct methods:

  • Laparoscopic surgery – Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure. It includes small incisions and surgical devices. It’s a less painful surgery that enables a faster recovery.
