As more and more people get in touch with me about my blog, I thought it would be nice to include some information related to the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or VSG weight loss surgery. I came across two videos on YouTube that I thought would be information. The first video does a pretty good job of explaining the procedure in an animation. The second video actually shows the procedure in action, so beware… this video is NOT for the easy queasy!! 🙂
