How Is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Performed?

This procedure is performed using an endoscopic suturing device attached to an endoscope, which is inserted into your stomach through your mouth. Since it is inserted through your mouth, there are no incisions or scars involved. The sutures are performed internally by the device–approximately eight sutures are internally created in your stomach, which reduces the size of your stomach by up to 80%.

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, compared to other bariatric surgeries in Seattle, is especially exciting because:

  • It is less risky
  • There are fewer chances of complications
