Comprehensive Nonsurgical Solutions to Weight Problems - weight loss success without drugs or surgery

Our philosophy

Ninety-nine percent of persons suffering from the worldwide obesity epidemic remain untreated. We can fight back with new technologies and techniques. As an illustration, there are now simpler and safer interventions that can be performed to induce a significant and sustainable weight loss. Paramount to these novel treatments is a sound nutritional and behavioral program with a personal approach.

Who is Dr. Anthony Starpoli?

Dr. Starpoli is a highly qualified medical professional with triple board certification in internal medicine, gastroenterology, and obesity medicine. He has dedicated his career to providing innovative and effective treatments to patients struggling with weight loss. One of the unique approaches he employs is the integration of gastrointestinal endoscopy and obesity medicine, which allows him to perform incisionless procedures that achieve weight loss without the need for surgery.

What do we offer? Nonsurgical ESG.

Weight loss success without drugs or surgery.  One of the primary methods used by Dr. Starpoli is endoscopic suturing that involves using a thin tube with a camera known as an endoscope. This device is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach.  Using a special device, Dr. Starpoli places multiple stitches through the stomach wall.  These stitches create plications or folds of stomach tissue that reduce the width and length of the stomach. This remodeling creates a more restrictive environment that limits the intake of calories, resulting in significant weight loss for patients.  The procedure is referred to as Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty or ESG.

What are EBPs?

 Endoscopic bariatric procedures (EBP) are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional weight loss surgery that uses the endoscope and the Apollo Overstitch device that functions like a sewing machine. This technique is highly effective and can be performed as an outpatient procedure, eliminating the need for a hospital stay.
Another advantage of using the Apollo Overstitch device is its ability to revise a failed gastric bypass surgery. This approach is less invasive than traditional surgical sleeve gastrectomy surgery and has been shown to be highly effective in helping patients achieve significant weight loss.

Our Philosophy.

Overall, Dr. Starpoli’s innovative approach to weight loss success without drugs or surgery using endoscopic procedures.  These techniques are transforming the field of obesity medicine. His commitment to providing minimally invasive, highly effective treatments has helped patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve their overall health and well-being.
Endoscopic procedures for weight loss are becoming increasingly popular due to their less invasive nature compared to traditional weight loss surgery. Above all, these procedures have a shorter recovery time and fewer complications.  They are an attractive option for many individuals seeking to lose weight. Certainly, it is important to note that endoscopic procedures may not be suitable for severely obese individuals who require a larger amount of weight loss.

Considering a weight loss procedure.

If you are considering endoscopic procedures for weight loss, it is important to consult with a qualified obesity medicine specialist. We evaluate your medical history and current health to determine if endoscopic procedures are the right option for you.  The doctor will provide guidance on which specific endoscopic procedure may be best suited for your individual needs.
It is important to understand that weight loss is not an immediate process with endoscopic procedures. The weight loss is gradual over time and may take several months before seeing significant results. While endoscopic procedures can help jumpstart weight loss, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen after the procedure to ensure long-term success.  Additionally, we advocate the use of medical therapy, when needed, in conjunction with these procedures to achieve even more successful weight loss and maintenance of weight.

Let us help.

At our practice, we encourage our patients to adopt healthy lifestyle habits that promote weight loss and overall health. This includes incorporating nutritious foods into their diet, staying physically active, and seeking support from loved ones and healthcare professionals.
Overall, endoscopic procedures for weight loss offer a promising alternative for those who are seeking a less invasive approach to weight loss.  These patients may not be candidates for traditional, invasive weight loss surgery or simply are unwilling to undergo surgery.  These patients may also wish to attempt avoiding long-term drug therapy if possible. Furthermore, if you have experienced a plateau on weight loss medications, these endoscopic treatments may further your weight loss.  If you are considering endoscopic procedures for weight loss, Dr. Starpoli and our team will meet with you to discuss all of your options and help you determine the best course of action for your individual needs.
