The hunger hormone called ghrelin is secreted from the part of the stomach called the fundus, which is mostly removed. This surgery does not contain any components related to the intestines, in this respect, it is the most natural and most physiological surgery. After this surgery, the stomach is filled with a small amount of food and satiety is felt.
