“ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY” FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Now-a-days we observe most of the people are suffering with the weight gain and its consequences. In order to overcome this difficulty people are approaching many procedures like surgeries, exercises, diet maintenance, weight loss classes etc., to reduce these difficulties of the people, researchers had introduced a procedure “ENDOSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTROPLASTY” for weight loss. This procedure reduces all the difficulties faced by the weight loss surgeries and allows the people to undergo a safe and secured procedure.

A new, nonsurgical weight-loss procedure that involves inserting a tube down a patient’s throat and stitching the abdomen is safe and effective. As this is an endoscopic and non surgical procedure it does not require any cuttings of the abdomen during the procedure that is named Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, doctors insert an extended tube down a patient’s passageway to the abdomen. Then, they sew “pleats” into the abdomen which resembles accordion. The procedure reduces the dimensions of the abdomen, so patients feel fuller very faster and so eat less. This procedure provides a good opportunity mainly for the obese people (BMI>30) and for the people who are not comfortable with the surgeries. This procedure is secure, consistent and cost-effective. After a  normal surgical weight loss procedure, patient have to be in the hospital for 3 to 4 days but in this procedure that is not required and the patient can be as usual soon after the treatment.

Apart from this endoscopic procedure, there are two old procedures for the weight loss named: laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic banding which involves surgical treatments. Both of these operations involve creating tiny incisions exceedingly in person’s abdomen to permit surgeons to get into contact with stomach. In a laparoscopic sleeve surgery, surgeons cut away an oversized portion of the abdomen, creating the organ smaller and sleeve-shaped. In a laparoscopic stripe operation, surgeons wrap a band round the higher portion of the abdomen (rather than cutting the organ), so solely a smaller section of the abdomen is left to hold out its functions.
