A new member of the family of less invasive weight loss procedures, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is intended for patients who are not severely obese but who nevertheless have significant weight problems. As performed by our expert team at Elite Surgical Center, the procedure is performed under anesthesia and is typically completed within two hours. Entering through the mouth and esophagus, a suturing device attached to an endoscope – a tiny digital camera and light – reduces the size of the stomach to a sleeve-like shape. The result is a substantially decreased appetite and substantially less desire to overeat.
Even if a patient is not technically considered severely obese, being significantly overweight is a very major health problem that causes high blood pressure, diabetes, and numerous other serious health problems.
