What is the

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?

This is a new, much less invasive procedure for weight loss since it does not require traditional abdominal surgery.

An endoscope is used to access the stomach and create folds in the upper part of it, reducing its capacity and helping control food intake.

Who qualifies for the

endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty?

It is especially suitable for those with a Body Mass Index greater than 30, who have tried other weight loss methods without success, and who want to avoid traditional bariatric surgery. However, not all patients are ideal candidates for this procedure.

Your BMI is

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of their height in meters. BMI is an easy assessment method for weight category: from Severe Thinness to Normal, to Obese Class III.

What happens during an

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?

During a gastric sleeve procedure, endoscopic instruments are used to reduce the volume of the stomach and therefore limit the amount of food that can be consumed.


General anesthesia is administered to ensure that the patient is comfortable and relaxed during the process.

Beginning of the procedure

The Endoscopic Sleeve does NOT need incisions and does not generate wounds.

Stomach reduction

Folds are made in the stomach, significantly reducing the volume of the patient's stomach, so smaller amounts of food provide a feeling of satiety.

Follow ups

We ensure that the sutures are properly positioned, with no signs of bleeding.

Completion of the procedure

The endoscope is removed. Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty lasts approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Most people go home the same day after recovering from sedation.

What are the results of the

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty?

There are different reasons why the Gastric Sleeve has displaced other surgeries, such as the Gastric Band Surgery (LAP-Band), the Gastroplication (GERD), and the Gastrojejunostomy, as the procedure of choice for patients with obesity. This is due to its many benefits.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)

versus other bariatric surgeries

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a less invasive bariatric option compared to other surgeries, such as Gastric Bypass or Laparoscopic Sleeve. While bypass and banding involve more complex anatomical changes or the use of implanted devices, the endoscopic sleeve is performed by creating folds in the stomach, eliminating the need for external incisions.
