ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY

Struggling with excess weight can be challenging, causing significant risks for future health. Bariatric surgery is an increasingly popular option and the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a minimally invasive option with minimal side effects.

WHAT IS AN
ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY?

A relatively recent development in the world of bariatric surgery, the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is classified as a minimally invasive surgery that seeks to help patients lose excess weight and increase quality of life whilst minimising the incidence and impact of related health problems.

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty involves the insertion of medical device that is capable of suturing the stomach to reduce it's size and therefore the amount of food that can be consumed. As part of the stomach has been reduced, the patient consumes less food and often weight loss results are life-changing.

SMALL INCISIONS WITH BIG RESULTS

The way the gastric sleeve surgery is undertaken means that recovery time is shortened with minimal risk of complications.

Most patients are able to resume their daily lives relatively quickly with little or no side effects, consuming far fewer calories which helps in losing weight and avoiding larger obesity related health problems that comes with excess weight.

In fact, one of the most compelling reasons why this form of weight loss surgery is popular is the faster recovery time and lack of scarring, as with most endoscopic procedures.
