Resumen

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy has been widely accepted and adopted as a weight loss procedure for obesity. Although technically demanding, it is feasible and can improve patients' overall health. However, any variation from normal anatomy can be challenging for any surgery, especially bariatric surgery, where a mistake could mean going from a life-saving opportunity to costing the patient's life. We present the case of an obese patient who sought medical attention and decided on bariatric surgery. During her preoperative evaluation, situs inversus totalis was discovered. After careful planning, the surgical team completed the surgery without complications, and the patient recovered completely.
