Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG), or endoscopic gastric sleeve, is a minimally-invasive, endoscopic weight loss procedure. The procedure is non-surgical, therefore there are no incisions and no scars. The ESG procedure is performed as an outpatient. It is performed at an outpatient surgery center. It does not require admission to the hospital. The recovery is fast and you only take 2-3 days off after the procedure, then you can go back to work. While you are under anesthesia, our endoscopic weight loss specialist introduces a scope from your mouth and advances it to the stomach. The scope is equipped with a suturing device that allows the endoscopist to suture the walls of the stomach together to decrease the stomach size by around 70%. The procedure is very safe and effective. Patients lose on average 18% to 20% of their weight. With the ESG procedure, patients are able to maintain weight loss long-term.

Orbera gastric balloon

Orbera balloon is the number one gastric weight loss balloon in the world. During a simple 15-minute endoscopy, our endoscopic weight loss specialist inserts the deflated balloon from the mouth to the stomach. The gastric balloon is inflated with a saline solution and it is left in the stomach lumen. The weight loss balloon gives you a sensation of fullness, so you are able to eat small portions and feel satisfied. This results in significant and rapid weight loss. The procedure is minimally-invasive and it is performed in an outpatient surgery center. After the gastric balloon insertion, you go home the same day. You need to take 2-3 days off, then you can go back to work. The balloon is left in the stomach for 6 months, then it is removed the same way it was placed via an outpatient endoscopy. With the Orbera balloon, you can lose 3 times more weight than with diet and exercise. By changing your lifestyle and your eating habits, and with the ongoing support of our team, you are able to maintain weight loss.

Spatz3 weight loss balloon

Spatz3 balloon is the first and only adjustable gastric balloon in the world. The Spatz balloon is inserted during an outpatient endoscopic procedure. The endoscopist introduces the deflated gastric balloon into the stomach. The balloon is inflated with a saline solution and left in the stomach. The procedure only takes 15 minutes. It is done as an outpatient. You go home the same day and you go back to work after 2-3 days off. The Spatz balloon gives you a fullness sensation, so you can eat smaller portions of food and lose weight. The gastric balloon is left in the stomach for 8 months then it is removed during an endoscopy. The advantage of the Spatz3 ballon is that it is adjustable. If you are having symptoms from the balloon, we can perform an endoscopy and aspirate fluid from the stomach balloon so it is better tolerated. If the weight loss slows down after 3-4 months, we can add fluid to the balloon to increase the fullness sensation and restart the weight loss. Our team continues to work with you even after the Spatz balloon removal to make sure you can maintain the results long-term.

 

 

Bariatric-revision-content

Gastric bypass revision

Gastric bypass revision, also known as bariatric revision, or Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe), is a non-surgical outpatient procedure to suture a previous gastric bypass. Gastric Bypass is an extremely effective bariatric surgery that results in significant weight loss as evidenced by the overwhelming number of gastric bypass success stories. However, many patients experience weight regain years after their initial weight loss. The purpose of performing a gastric bypass revision is to address weight regain due to stretching of the gastric pouch and the gastric outlet following the initial surgery.

 

 

Gastric Sleeve Revision

Gastric sleeve revision

Gastric sleeve revision, also known as a sleeve gastrectomy revision, is a non-surgical outpatient procedure to suture a previous sleeve gastrectomy. Vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) is a very effective bariatric surgery that results in significant weight loss. The complications are relatively infrequent, given the overwhelming number of gastric sleeve success stories. However, some patients may experience weight regain after their initial weight loss, and this can be very frustrating. The purpose of performing a gastric sleeve revision is to address weight regain due to stretching of the stomach following the initial procedure.
