A recent study indicates that endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is an effective early intervention for obesity.
Patients who visit EndoSlim Clinic NY of Atlantic Gastroenterology presenting with a higher BMI and certain medical conditions related to obesity should be open and honest when talking with Dr. Alexander Shapsis and his team in Brooklyn, New York, about their needs. Many of our patients who are overweight but not obese may find that certain procedures can be performed to help them meet their weight loss goals and reduce their risks for a wide range of obesity-related conditions that can develop.
Additionally, patients who lose weight and maintain an appropriate BMI as adults will enjoy a better quality of life overall. Our team is here to help and may recommend endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty as a preventative to obesity.
What is endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty?
The endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, sometimes called by the acronym ESG, is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that reduces the stomach size to aid in weight loss. It is best for patients with mild to moderate obesity and can help in reducing the risk of obesity in those who are overweight.
Recent studies have been found that support the use of endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty as a way to avoid obesity in patients who are overweight and are seeking weight loss options. Diet and increased exercise are always recommended, but patients struggling with successful weight loss are still at risk of experiencing obesity.
The team at Atlantic Gastroenterology also finds that certain studies that have been performed on ESG for overweight but not obese patients support this procedure as a way to avoid issues in the future.
