        In our country there is a national network of surgery and accessibility to the minimal access technique that positions it as one of the best in the region. Among these minimal access techniques is bariatric surgery (for stomach reduction by the gastric sleeve technique).

        Bariatric surgery can save the lives of people with severe obesity, over 65 years old, who have other associated chronic diseases, and if after 5 years with medical treatment they have not achieved the necessary weight loss, this procedure aims to reduce the capacity of the stomach and alter the intestinal tract, in order to prevent the absorption of fats and other nutrients during the digestive process.

        It is performed with techniques of minimum access, standardized and recognized worldwide, with which a quick recovery is achieved, less post-surgical pain, less disability and damage to the organism.

        In Cuba, this treatment is distinguished because it is performed by a multidisciplinary team, after a comprehensive assessment, which includes specialists - nationally certified and internationally endorsed - in nutrition, psychology, endocrinology, surgery, anesthesiology, cardiology, and any other specialty required by the patient.
