Minimally Invasive Procedure
The OverStitch® gastric reduction is a revolutionary new ESG (Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty) method. The pioneer of this procedure was Mayo Clinic in 2012, and since then, it has gained popularity not only in the United States but also worldwide due to its minimally invasive nature. The essence of the treatment is to place a suture longitudinally along the stomach through endoscopic techniques via the esophagus This suture contracts the stomach along its length, which could reduce it to even the third of its original size. This helps the stomach in the less food intake and, as a result, leads to a quicker sense of satiety.
With the OverStitch® endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty procedure, we can not only avoid drastic surgical interventions, but also achieve proven and long-term weight loss and lifestyle changes. Through endoscopic gastroplasty, patients can typically lose 20-25% of their body weight in one year on average. For example, a patient weighing 100 kg could expect to lose 20-25 kg. Of course, for more successful weight loss, it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, recommended by our doctors and team members who support the lifestyle changes. Thanks to this, we can improve our quality of life and reduce the health risks associated with obesity.
Compared to traditional gastric reduction surgeries, with the OverStitch® endoscopic procedure there is no risk of surgical complications, only safe weight loss and a more health-conscious lifestyle!
