Situs inversus is a rare condition with an estimate incidence of 1 in 10000 people. This video demonstrates the feasibility of performing a longitudinal sleeve gastrectomy on a patient with situs inversus. This is a 48 year-old female with BMI 46.7 with no prior surgeries. During her preoperative evaluation, a chest X-ray showed dextrocardia. A small bowel follow through showed the stomach and duodenum in mirror position. No hiatal hernia was seen. The CT scan showed the liver towards the left and the stomach towards the right upper quadrant. Operative time was 97 minutes. No complications were observed. Oral intake was started on post-operative day 1 and discharged safely home the same day.
