Medical weight loss options

Maintaining a healthy weight for your body is vital for overall wellness. When you are within your ideal weight range and body mass index, you can reduce your risk of developing various diseases, ranging from diabetes and heart disease to cancer. Eating a healthy diet and exercising daily is vital for maintaining a healthy weight. Consuming nutrient-dense foods, choosing healthier fats and proteins, drinking plenty of water, limiting processed and sugary foods, and avoiding excessive alcohol consumption are all essential for maintaining a healthy weight.

Medical weight loss options

However, if you are looking for alternative weight loss options, it may be time to talk to a doctor at the EndoSlim Clinic of Atlantic Gastroenterology in Brooklyn, New York, about your medical weight loss options. Weight reduction methods monitored by a doctor are the best way to reduce weight safely and healthily.

What weight loss options are available?

Dr. Alexander Shapsis is a Board-Certified gastroenterologist with years of experience in the field. He is proud to offer several weight loss procedures and methods without surgery for your consideration. These include:

  • Spatz 3 – Gastric Balloon. This is a specialized intragastric balloon designed to take up space in the stomach to help you feel fuller and eat less and slow food emptying into stomach
  • EndoSlim – Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty. This is a procedure in which the stomach is sutured to reduce capacity dramatically and slow food emptying into stomach
  • Medical-guided weight loss. This is a multidisciplinary approach to managing weight in a safe manner with doctor-monitored progress
Apollo Endosurgery

Endoscopic sleeve GASTROPLASTY or ESG is a weight loss procedure that reduces the size of your stomach so you eat less and feel full faster. It is performed by a specially trained doctor endoscopically, which means no incisions, no scars.

ESG is performed using the Apollo ESG system, the first and only device authorized by the FDA for this procedure. The Apollo ESG system is a small endoscopic suturing device about the size of your finger that attaches to the end of an endoscope or camera. A specially trained doctor passes the device and camera through your mouth and into your stomach. The doctor uses the suturing device along the large curve of your stomach to sew it into a smaller shape. The stitches or sutures are placed in a U-shaped pattern starting near the bottom of your stomach and working towards the top of the stomach. As each U is completed, the suture is tightened down to reduce the volume of the stomach,

The doctor continues to sew along the large curve of the stomach until six to eight sutures are completed. With your stomach sewn into a smaller shape, you’ll eat less and feel full faster, resulting in significant weight loss. See the difference. Patients lose an average of 14% of total body weight at year one or 49% of excess body weight. This advanced endoscopic procedure does not require incisions, meaning no scarring, and less time away. Most patients typically go home the same day as the procedure and can return to work in two to three days. The Apollo ESG system is the first and only device to be authorized by the FDA to perform ESG for weight loss. It is indicated in adults with obesity with A BMI between 30 and 50 who have not been able to lose weight or keep weight off with diet and exercise alone. Learn more about the ESG procedure by visiting apollo Patients who have an ESG must also pursue certain lifestyle modifications such as changes to diet and exercise in order to achieve desired results. All procedures have risks. Talk to your doctor and understand all risks before having a procedure.
