Surgery can be very frightening. Almost all surgeries are performed as they should be, but there will always be a small element of risk.
A new procedure called Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) helps deliver a similar result as other procedure without additional surgical risk.
The stomach is still reduced by 70% without any incision. The stomach is stitched via a flexible tube called an endoscope. It enters the patient's mouth and the surgeon is able to control all aspects through video.
The benefits of an ESG procedure:
- It's less than 2 hours long
- Doesn’t require a long hospital stay
- Allows you to recover and be doing normal things within 1 to 3 days.
- Is a completely reversible and repeatable procedure
