Gastric sleeve surgery is one of the most effective ways to lose weight. It is a restrictive type of surgery which provides long term results because of making the stomach smaller and thus helping people to lose weight easier by making them feel full after eating small portion meals.
Our doctors are extremely experienced. Jaroslav Tvaruzek M.D., has performed over 1200 gastric sleeve surgeries and Igor Simonik M.D. performs more than 200 gastric sleeve surgeries each year. A patient that weighs 120kg will lose on average 30-40 kg in the first year after the surgery.
Gastric sleeve surgery is performed in a clinic located between Prague and Brno, which is well known for its personal approach. You can fly to Prague, Brno or Vienna and our team will transport you to the clinic free of charge. You will not need to book accommodation as you will stay at the state of the art clinic.
Within a day you will get to know all the doctors and nurses at the clinic. The persons accompanying you may stay with you in one of the 2-3 bedroom apartment with full service. The clinic serves only a small number of guests at any given time. So, you can rest assured that you will receive intimate and personalised care from very attentive doctors and nurses. The state of the art clinic is located in the beautiful Czech countryside. Its intimate and secluded environment will help you rest and recover fully until you are ready to leave. The cornerstone was laid by the Pope John Paul II in 1990. Therefore on the same floor as our patients are accommodated is a small chapel for praying.

During the surgery the surgeon divides the stomach removing a portion of it so that it's becomes a much smaller. Then, in a process sometimes called stomach stapling the small part of the stomach is sewn or stapled together to make a pouch,
which can hold only a cup or so of food. With such a small stomach, people feel full quickly and eat less. This strategy is also called restrictive, since the new stomach size restricts how much food it can hold.
Post-surgery weight loss is often dramatic. On average, patients lose 60% of their extra weight. For example, a person weighing
159 kilos (350 pound) person is 91 kilos (200 pounds) overweight would drop about 54 kilos (120 pounds). Many
weight-related health problems improve or even disappear after gastric bypass surgery. The most common are diabetes, high blood
pressure, asthma, and obstructive sleep apnea. But losing weight and keeping it off takes lasting lifestyle changes, like eating
several small meals a day and getting regular exercise.
