testimonial for surgery abroadI've been looking for a good weight loss clinic when I found surgeryprice. I went to the recommended clinic to have gastric sleeve...After I got home, weight has gone steadily downhill, and health has become better and better. I only regret I have not done this earlier. Nothing to be nervous about or be afraid of. I recommend Surgery price. They offered a fantastic clinic abroad, only much cheaper and better service. Jane, gastric sleeve, UK

About gastric sleeve

Gastric sleeve is a procedure during which a surgeon removes about 70 - 80 % of the stomach which then resembles the shape of a sleeve. The surgeon uses a tiny camera called a laparoscope and minute surgical instruments which he inserts through small incisions. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia.

Gastric sleeve is an innovative technique which allows patients to lose excess weight and more importantly to maintain achieved results effectively. It is essential to bear in mind that gastric sleeve not only causes physical changes in the stomach, but it also alters the lifestyle and the attitude towards food and exercise in general. Patients together with their nutritionist review healthy eating patterns and the importance of physical activities.

Although gastric sleeve is a relatively new method in bariatric field and not much of medical data is collected so far, it is still regarded as one of the most effective and safest weight loss surgeries.
