(PRWEB) May 14, 2010 -- People who suffer from morbid obesity can consider a new primary weight loss operation known as the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), or the Gastric Sleeve Operation.

The Houston Surgical Specialists, lead by Doctor Robert G. Marvin, offer an all inclusive Texas Gastric Sleeve Package for a special rate of $11,000, which is about $5,000 under the typical cost for this type of weight loss procedure. This offer includes the surgery, all assistant fees, anesthesia fees, hospital costs, and the first 90 days of follow-up*(See details below).

Gastric sleeve is a minimally-invasive laparoscopic procedure done by placing a scope through small incisions made in the abdomen. This results in less post-operative pain than a traditional surgical procedure that requires a larger incision. Most patients can go home early the following day after a LSG. Also, returning to work is much easier, and can usually be done within seven-to-ten days—and sometimes as few as three.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is a relatively new procedure devised for people who are severely obese and who may be suffering serious medical problems because of the obesity (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc). These people will get the best benefit from maximum weight loss.

The goal is to decrease the storage capacity of the stomach so the patient experiences a subjective feeling of fullness after consuming smaller amounts
