ESG Procedure (Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty) Revision
For patients that have gone through the Lap Band procedure, there are possible risks and side effects. Doctors go over these concerns, with percentages and specific details, before surgery. When a patient has complications, it sometimes requires another surgery to correct it.
Dr. Marvin offers something different than surgery for people that experience lap band failure or find their gastric band not working. The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, or ESG procedure, is a revision treatment to fix lap band issues that is less invasive than other surgeries. The sleeve is created with stitches in the stomach that shrink its size.
Instead of incisions, ports, and the need for regular fills, this maneuver leaves no outlying scars or signs of having work done. It doesn’t need the same upkeep as the lap band either. This revision, instead, is done through telescoping through the mouth all the way down into the stomach.
