At OakBend, we are dedicated to transforming lives and helping our patients achieve their health goals. Today, we would like to share an inspiring patient story that highlights the remarkable success of one young gentleman who embarked on a weight loss journey under the care of Dr. Christopher Reilly, our esteemed general surgeon. With the help of a Laparoscopic Longitudinal Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure, this patient has achieved his weight loss goals and is now enjoying a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Laparoscopic Longitudinal Sleeve Gastrectomy Explained

Laparoscopic Longitudinal Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that reduces the size of the stomach. During the procedure, a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a smaller sleeve-shaped pouch. This results in a reduction in the stomach’s capacity, allowing patients to feel full sooner and consume smaller portions of food.

Dr. Reilly’s Expert Insights on LSG

“At OakBend, we understand the profound impact excess weight can have on a person’s physical and emotional well-being. Laparoscopic Longitudinal Sleeve Gastrectomy is a powerful tool in our arsenal to help patients reclaim their health and achieve long-term weight loss. By reducing the stomach’s size, LSG not only promotes weight loss through reduced caloric intake but also positively influences various obesity-related comorbidities, leading to overall improved health and quality of life.”

How LSG is Helpful

LSG offers numerous benefits to individuals struggling with obesity or weight-related health issues. By limiting the stomach’s capacity, this procedure promotes weight loss by reducing caloric intake. Additionally, LSG has been shown to have positive effects on various obesity-related comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea. It is a valuable tool in improving overall health and enhancing the quality of life for many patients.
