Major long-term studies demonstrate diabetes remission after metabolic surgery with the sleeve gastrectomy, a 45-minute laparoscopic procedure. But patients rightly wish to know if that remission translates to meaningful gains in health and quantifiable reductions in end-organ diabetic disease, including renal, ophthalmological, and peripheral neuropathy complications. In the O’Brien matched cohort study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, investigators studied more than 4,000 diabetic…

Sleeve gastrectomy is a 45-minute laparoscopy procedure. Ten-year studies help paint a picture of the durability of the remission rates for diabetes among individuals who undergo sleeve gastrectomy.

Among the patients who had type two diabetes before surgery, the vast majority experienced complete remission at year 1, and then as the years passed, diabetes gradually returned in a minority of the patients.

sleeve gastrectomy because of its excellent success rate and low complication rate. In fact, many studies show an equivalent weight loss success and equivalent diabetes remission success rate as gastric bypass surgery but with fewer complications of blockages, reoperations, and vitamin deficiencies.  In my own hands, after a decade of experience with other bariatric surgeries, and other complex gastrointestinal surgical procedures, I have completed approximately…
