Sleeve Gastrectomy in Rock Hill, SC
Battling obesity is difficult on your own. Visit Piedmont General Surgery Associates for a sleeve gastrectomy in Rock Hill, SC. At our medical office, we work with our patients to understand the outcome they want and discuss with them the lifestyle changes this kind of weight loss surgery entails. When it comes to bariatric sleeve surgery, patients need to understand the importance of maintenance post-surgery. Unlike a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, a sleeve gastrectomy removes 75-80% of the stomach, leaving behind a tube-shaped stomach that restricts the amount of food you can consume.
This simple surgery offers our patients a reduced risk of several life-threatening diseases, some of which include:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 Diabetes
