Gastric Sleeve Icon

Also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), this surgery is the most frequently performed weight loss surgery for obesity.

VSG also reduces hunger by removing the part of the stomach that produces the hunger-stimulating hormone called Ghrelin. It is a less invasive approach that reduces the risk of complications. Gastric sleeve surgery reduces the risk of life-threatening weight-related health problems such as Type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, and sleep apnea. Gastric sleeve in Tijuana is one of the more popular options provided with our medical tourism model.
