This video demonstrates a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in a mobidly obese patient. The surgeon starts by mobilizing the greater curvature 7 cm proximal to the pylorus and divides all the vessels including the short gastric vessels to the angle of His. After that a linear stapler is used to construct the sleeve gastrectomy around a 36 bougie. The operation ends with oversewing of the staple line and removal of the specimen.
