Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Procedure: Endoscopic Gastric Bypass
Wouldn’t it be great if you could lose weight and feel great with no downtime? Now you can. Dr. Chris Ibikunle of IBI Healthcare Institute is a bariatric surgeon who specializes in a new form of gastric bypass surgery known as Endoscopic Gastric Bypass. This new technique includes no incision, less risk, and less downtime than traditional gastric bypass surgery.
What is Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux En Y Gastric Bypass?
Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux en Y is one of the most common forms of weight loss surgery in America; accounting for nearly 50% of weight loss procedures. Roux en Y gastric bypass includes surgically altering the size of the stomach. The surgeon reduces the stomach to a small “pouch” and then connects it to the intestines. The smaller stomach size allows the patient to feel full faster and in turn, lose weight. This procedure is great for balancing weight loss and manageable side effects for patients. Average weight loss also tends to be greater with this procedure.
What is Endoscopic Gastric Bypass?
Endoscopic Gastric Bypass Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty or ESG or Endo Sleeve or Accordion procedure is a Gastric Bypass alternative procedure accomplished by the use of an endoscopic suturing device without the need for surgery. Also, this procedure is minimally invasive, reducing the risks associated with the bypass. The procedure is also very effective in weight loss and is ideal for patients with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30. This alternative to traditional gastric bypass surgery also requires a very limited recovery period. Our patients are often back to business as usual after 1 day!
Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Alternative
The new and minimally invasive procedure uses an endoscopic suturing device to reduce the size of the stomach by up to 80 percent without surgery. Moreover, Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty targets those who have been unsuccessful at maintaining weight loss with other methods and who have a body mass index between 30 and 40 or who qualify but do not wish to undergo bariatric surgery.
By downsizing the patient’s stomach size will limit how much a person can eat. That’s the same thinking behind invasive bariatric surgery such as sleeve gastrectomy.
“It’s a step toward losing weight, but patients have to participate in diet, exercise, and overall healthy living,” Ibikunle says.
