North Shore Digestive Medicine offers Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), an advanced, minimally invasive technique for weight loss. Without requiring any surgical incisions, the stomach is reduced in size by 60-75% using an endoscopic suturing device.
The stomach is sutured during the procedure to form a smaller, tube-shaped pouch. This lowers the stomach’s capacity to store food, which results in earlier sensations of fullness and less food consumption.

Overstitch® is a small suturing device attached to the end of an endoscope and then passes to the stomach under general anesthesia. Our specifically trained physician then sews your stomach into a small shape.
Your Possibility of Losing Weight with ESG
Unlike conventional bariatric procedures, the digestive tract is not rerouted or any portion of the stomach removed during an ESG. To ensure that patients are completely informed before making decisions, our knowledgeable North Shore Digestive Medicine staff offers thorough information on the ESG procedure, including its advantages, risks, and predicted outcome of an average total body weight loss of 18-20%.

The ESG procedure reduces the stomach size and length. This smaller stomach acts as portion control, limiting food intake during meals. Additionally, the new shape of the stomach slows digestion, prolonging the feeling of fullness and promoting weight loss. The reduced stomach size enhances satiety and increases satisfaction.

The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes. It is performed under general anesthesia; patients can usually return home the same day. At North Shore Digestive Medicine, our team guides patients through every process step, from pre-procedure preparation to post-procedure care.

Like any medical procedure, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) carries risks and potential side effects, even though it is generally considered safe. These could include bleeding, nausea, vomiting, or momentary discomfort. Serious problems are uncommon, however.
