👉 Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Video – Brigham and Women's Hospital 2021



Weight loss surgery performed by laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, for morbidly obese patients, is demonstrated by Dr.Scott Shikora, Director Metabolic Health and Bariatric Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. During the weight loss surgery, the outer crescent of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a stomach shaped like a tube which can hold three to five ounces of food. Patients lose 50 to 65% of excess body weight and experience other health benefits including a reduction in blood pressure and less joint pain.

The Center for Metabolic Health and Bariatric Surgery (CMHBS) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a full service, comprehensive Level 1A Center of Excellence accredited Bariatric Center with the American College of Surgeons.

    Hi all, I've been considering this for awhile, but I've got a couple of questions that I don't see answered. #1. I'm 71 years old, is that too old? I'm 6'1". Shrunk an 1" ! And I weigh 250 lbs. I've been on Slimfast, did nothing, nutrisystem, only worked while on it, plus got sick of the food. Keto, wasn't good for my kidneys, plus got stage 3 kidney failure.
    #.2. I've seen where some loose 100-150 lbs, I don't want to loo that much, being too heavy and being too thin kinda look the same, with me being 6'1" and if I lost 100 lbs, I'd be 150, and I think that would be too thin ..idk?
    #3. You say you need help afterward, like what, I just lost my husband and there isn't anyone too help
    #4. What does the pre surgery diet consist of? Is there a certain diet plan?
    Or should I just forget this since I am so old?

    Had mine done in 2015. I'm 31 now, I have gone from 27 stone to 11 and a half. Size uk 30 to UK 12. It's not easy, it's not a quick fix. You throw up… a lot, you lose hair, you will have some very bad low points but you will get your life back. To anyone on their journey, I wish you luck and send you love. See you on the losers bench!

    Dr. Shikora thank you so much for making this video. I feel a little more easy with the procedure. This video was very informative and you did an excellent job of walking the viewer thru the surgery.
