What Is a Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a non-surgical procedure using the endoscopic technique. A series of stitches are applied within the stomach to create a narrow tube which significantly decreases the stomach’s capacity. This procedure has several benefits, including weight loss, improved quality of life for gastric ulcer patients, and better diabetes management. The whole procedure takes about one hour to perform, and the patient can go home safely and be discharged the next day from the hospital.
How It Works
After stitching, the stomach becomes narrower, and the volume reduction of the stomach following ESG is approximately 60- 70%. In addition, the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty slows the ability of the stomach to empty, which further enhances & prolongs satiety like a gastric balloon or sleeve surgery. This makes the patient feel full for a longer period of time.
Studies show the procedure, when combined with a comprehensive dietary and lifestyle program, leads to an average of approximately 15-25% of total body weight over 12- 18 months. This procedure is good for people whose BMI is between 30 – 40. Compared to other weight loss procedures, ESG gives better results in terms of weight loss.
