The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) procedure was developed as a tool to help people, like yourself, eat right and lose weight.

The ESG (accordion procedure) is an incisionless weight loss procedure that reduces the volume of the stomach, similar to a vertical sleeve gastrectomy but without surgery. During the procedure, while you are under anesthesia, an endoscope is passed through your mouth, down your esophagus, and into your stomach where a series of sutures are placed in a specific pattern to reduce the size and capacity of the stomach. After the procedure, you will follow a brief liquid diet and most patients can generally return home the same day.
