Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty – A New Weight Loss Option

Drs. Reem Sharaiha and Michel Kahaleh from the Center for Advanced Digestive Care NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center plus Dr. Louis Arrone from the Center for Weight Management at NYP explain the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty procedure.

Performed completely with advanced endoscopic techniques, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty is a complement to bariatric surgery, as patients who undergo this procedure often do not qualify for bariatric surgery due to abdominal scarring, heart conditions or other factors. Specialists ranging from gastroenterology to endocrinology follow all patients receiving this procedure to make sure proper nutritional and metabolic outcomes are achieved.
