What is Endoplasmic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a minimally invasive surgery for weight loss that is becoming more popular. When you have endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, a suturing device is put in your throat and down to your stomach. You'll then have stitches put in your stomach to make it smaller. This surgery is performed if you are substantially overweight — with a body mass index of 30 or above — and have failed to lose weight with diet and exercise. It promotes weight loss by making you eat less. There are also fewer complications due to surgery because the procedure is minimally invasive and has lesser tissue damage.
