What are the newer bariatric prosedures being performed? Dr. Prewitt discusses sleeve gastrectomy, a procedure that restricts the amount of food and calories a person can eat during one sitting by removing 80% of the stomach. Therefore, the stomach can function normally with no malabsorption due to no intestinal bypass. This procedure has a lower risk for potential surgery complications that often occur with gastric bypass.
