Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Welcome to Jivan Hospital: Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)

We are excited to introduce you to an innovative and minimally invasive weight loss procedure known as Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG). As gastroenterologists dedicated to your overall health and well-being, we strive to offer the latest advancements in medical care, including effective solutions for weight management.

What is Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)?

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty is a cutting-edge procedure that offers an alternative to traditional weight loss surgeries such as gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy. ESG is performed entirely through the mouth using an endoscope, which is a flexible tube equipped with a camera and other instruments.

During the procedure, the endoscope is inserted into the stomach, allowing our skilled gastroenterologists to reduce the size of the stomach using special suturing techniques. This results in a smaller stomach pouch, which limits the amount of food you can eat and helps you feel full faster, leading to weight loss.

Advantages of Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty:

  1. Minimally Invasive: ESG is performed without any incisions, resulting in minimal scarring, less pain, and faster recovery compared to traditional weight loss surgeries.
  2. Outpatient Procedure: Most patients can undergo ESG as an outpatient, meaning you can typically return home the same day as the procedure.
  3. Effective Weight Loss: Clinical studies have shown that ESG can lead to significant and sustained weight loss, with many patients experiencing improvements in obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
  4. Customizable: The size of the stomach pouch created during ESG can be tailored to each individual patient, allowing for personalized treatment based on your unique needs and goals.
  5. Reversible: Unlike irreversible surgical procedures, ESG is reversible, offering flexibility in case you decide to pursue other weight loss options in the future.
