Vilnius, Lithuania -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/15/2018 -- Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure where part of the stomach is removed to create a new, tube-shaped sleeve/stomach. Most overweight people go abroad for gastric sleeve surgery since the procedure is more affordable when compared to the cost in the UK or Scandinavian countries.

Gastric sleeve surgery, also called vertical sleeve gastrectomy, is an irreversible surgical procedure that helps the patient feel full sooner, thus helps in losing weight. It is readily available in most countries; however, it may not be accessible for everyone due to the high cost. Therefore, many people in the Western European countries and the UK opt for sleeve gastrectomy abroad.

"I have always had a big appetite and been obese all my life. When I found out that gastric sleeve surgery is significantly less expensive in some other European countries compared to the UK, I decided to have a gastric sleeve abroad." - says Monica Evans, an insurance agent from Canterbury, England, who availed of a full-service package at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania. She was discharged from the hospital 3 days after the surgery and was able to return to work within two weeks.

"We offer a wide variety of surgical procedures which are available in complete packages including airport pickup and drop-off." - says CEO Andrius Kostogriz, the CEO at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.
