Gastric Sleeve doesn’t need to create a new connection between the stomach and small bowel (anastomosis) that’s why the chance of nutrient deficiency is also lower than gastric bypass surgery because there is no malabsorption. Also, the procedure is performed using a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique resulting in smaller scars and pain.
