How Is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Performed?
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a non-invasive, advanced day-care endoscopic procedure that involves the use of a thin, flexible endoscope with a camera and an endoscopic suturing device attached to its tip. The doctor inserts the endoscope orally down the patient’s throat into the stomach and operates inside the stomach without making an incision in the abdomen.With the help of the camera attached to an endoscope, the doctor looks inside the patient’s stomach on the monitor and performs the surgery by placing approximately 12 sutures in the stomach. Thereby, changing the shape of the stomach, which after surgery, looks like a tube (as the gastric volume of the stomach reduces by 50 – 60%). This helps in restricting the number of calories a patient intake.
