Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty ESG is a proven method for treating obesity that is comparable to traditional gastric sleeve surgery. It is a superior option to surgical sleeve gastrectomy, which involves partial removal of the stomach. ESG endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a cutting-edge technique that enables weight loss while preserving the stomach. This procedure employs a type of sewing machine that is inserted through the mouth, without any cutting required. By reducing the length and width of the gastric cavity, ESG significantly reduces the functional volume of the stomach, thereby restricting the amount of food a patient can eat. This mechanism is critical in achieving substantial and long-term weight loss.
The benefits of this non-surgical procedure are numerous. Patients do not experience the side effects associated with more invasive surgery, and the procedure can be performed in an outpatient setting, allowing most patients to return home on the same day. While the expected weight loss may be slightly less than traditional surgery, it still amounts to an impressive 15-20% total body weight loss. To ensure success, we recommend dietary and behavioral counseling throughout the entire process. Choose ESG, and take control of your weight loss journey today!
ESG is a highly effective weight loss option with significantly lower side effects than traditional surgery. It is suitable for patients who are not eligible for formal surgery or prefer a less invasive approach. Those who opt for weight loss procedures have likely not achieved success with dietary and lifestyle modifications alone.
