What is EndoSlim (Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty)?

If you have a relatively high body mass index (BMI) and have struggled with achieving your weight loss goals, you may become frustrated and feel at a loss. However, our Board-Certified gastroenterologist at the EndoSlim Clinic of Atlantic Gastroenterology, Brooklyn, New York, can recommend medical weight loss solutions. One method of treatment he may suggest is EndoSlim (Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty), a procedure designed to reduce stomach volume to assist in healthy weight loss.

What involves the EndoSlim (Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty) procedure?

The Apollo ESG device is the first and only device authorized by the FDA for performing EndoSlim (Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty). The device is long and includes a camera. It is inserted into the mouth and stomach, using specialized instruments to sew the stomach lining. The six to eight sutures placed are tightened to reduce the stomach size by up to 80%. The treatment is designed to help patients eat less and feel full faster, which often results in significant weight loss results!

What are the benefits of EndoSlim (Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty)?

Dr. Alexander Shapsis often recommends this treatment to patients for its many advantages. The ESG procedure performed with the Apollo device:

  • Does not require incisions
  • Does not leave scarring
  • Requires less downtime and recovery
  • Allows patients to return home the same day after the procedure
  • Allows patients to return to work within a few days in most situations
  • Can be paired with lifestyle modifications to achieve faster and longer-lasting results

As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks and complications that can occur. It is vital that you speak to your Board-Certified gastroenterologist about the pros and cons of this and other weight loss options available to you to make an educated decision on what is best for your unique needs.
