Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) in Vijayawada

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (ESG) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed using an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube equipped with a camera and instruments) to reduce the size of the stomach. The goal of the procedure is to help individuals with obesity achieve weight loss.

The main advantage of this procedure is that it’s much less invasively than other surgeries and doesn’t require any cutting or cutting into your body. This makes it a great option if you have any concerns about pain or bleeding during surgery. Another benefit is that this type of gastric banding can help reduce your risk for diabetes by helping you eat healthier foods and lose weight faster than if you were simply trying to eat less food overall.

How is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) Performed

In ESG, the surgeon uses the endoscope to create several small incisions in the abdomen, through which the instruments are inserted. The endoscope is then used to visually inspect the inside of the stomach, and a suturing device is used to create internal stitches that cinch the stomach into a narrow sleeve-like shape. This significantly reduces the size of the stomach, which restricts the amount of food that can be consumed and leads to a feeling of fullness more quickly.

ESG is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and can take up to 60-90 minutes to complete. Unlike other weight loss surgeries, ESG does not involve removing or bypassing any part of the stomach or intestines, which can minimize the risk of nutritional deficiencies and other complications associated with those procedures.

Is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) Permanent?

The answer to this question is yes. The treatment is permanent, but it does have some limitations. Your doctor may recommend maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly to help ensure success with this procedure over time.
