In this video a well-known bariatric surgeon from Costa Rica informs who is not a good candidate for gastric sleeve surgery. Just as it is important to know who is suited for a certain medical procedure, it is also important to know who is not suited for it.

Following is the video narration:

“It is the same indication for all the bariatirc surgeons. Patients that have problems with alcohol, or with drugs, heavy drugs, okay, they are not good patients for that kind of surgeries. And talking specifically about sleeve gastrectomy, the patients that are sweet- eaters, they are not very good patients for this kind of surgery because the sweet is very easy to swallow and to take in, okay.
