Background Sleeve gastrectomy has gained popularity since then as a definitive bariatric surgical procedure due to low-morbidity and mortality rates and short operation and hospitalization times. Aim The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate the incidence of new-onset gastroesophageal reflux in pediatric and adolescent morbidly obese patients following a standardized laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and to revise our option plans. Patients and methods Files of all operated morbidly obese pediatric and adolescent patients less than or equal to 20 years of age who underwent standardized LSG by a single surgeon in the Pediatric Surgery Unit, Surgery Department, Tanta University Hospital between January 2013 and December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Results The incidence of new-onset gastroesophageal reflux disease after LSG in our study (5.65–16.67%). Conclusion The incidence of new-onset gastroesophageal reflux disease after LSG in our study is small but deserves attention.
