For patients who have regained weight after already having a bariatric surgery ( Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) or Sleeve gastrectomy)

How it works: reduces the volume of a RYGB pouch or sleeve gastrectomy stomach which has enlarged and slows the speed at which food passes to the bowel, making you feel full more quickly.

In an outpatient endoscopic procedure, a suturing device at the end of an endoscope is used to place a set of sutures that get pulled and tightened to bring sections of stomach tissue together and small again.

Patients go home the same day and can resume normal activities within one to three days.

After the procedure, you’ll start a liquid diet, then gradually move to semi-solid foods before resuming a regular, healthy diet as prescribed by your dietitian. You will also have medical checkups and support from your behavior coach, dietitian and other care team members.
