What is the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) procedure?
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a minimally invasive, outpatient, non-surgical, incision-less weight loss procedure. The endoscopist sutures the stomach from the inside to reduce its size, which results in long-lasting weight loss. The procedure is very well tolerated. The patients are not admitted to the hospital, and they return to their normal routine after a few days.

The Orbera balloon is the number one gastric balloon system in the world. It is a smooth silicone saline-filled intragastric balloon that is placed in the stomach for 6 months. With the Orbera balloon, patients lose 3 times more weight than with diet and exercise alone.

What is medical weight loss?
Many patients can lose weight…only to see it return. At Digestive Care Specialists, we use medications to treat the biological/hormonal drivers of weight gain to help you lose weight and keep it off. You will undergo a medical evaluation and then get a prescription for the medication appropriate for you. You will continue to be under medical supervision, while our registered dietitians work directly with you to achieve sustained weight loss by creating a plan tailored to your individual needs and medical history.
