Gunnison Valley Hospital Gastric Sleeve Services
Gunnison Valley Hospital provides gastric sleeve surgery as a service to patients who would benefit from major weight loss and who can commit to living a new, healthier lifestyle. The surgery reduces the size of the patient’s stomach, creating a smaller stomach or “sleeve,” and restricts the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. Following a consultation, the procedure requires an educational course led by a Registered Nurse, and a new pre-operative diet as preparation.
If you feel like you may be a good candidate for gastric sleeve surgery, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (435) 528-7246 to learn about the benefits, risks, complications and side effects of the procedure. After consultation with a nurse, you will be referred to the appropriate doctor.
Please note, this surgery is not usually covered by insurance.
