Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is an emerging bariatric procedure. Its acceptance as an alternative surgical treatment for morbid obesity in the last years is due to the fact that is a rapid and less traumatic operation and thus far is showing good resolution of co-morbidities and good weight loss. We present the stepwise approach for the construction of sleeve gastrectomy in an obese patient with the aid of five abdominal trocars.
