Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery

Endoscopic Bariatric Surgeries are path-breaking non-invasive procedures where patients can achieve substantial weight loss, just like in the case of other laparoscopic procedures.


The advent of sophisticated endoscopic equipment has facilitated procedures like Intragastric Balloon and Endo gastric Sleeve Gastroplasty. These procedures that are done through mouth aid in reducing the size of the stomach or alter digestive tracts in order to reduce the intake of food and calories ingested by the body.

Who Needs Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery?

Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery is an advanced and emerging area of bariatric surgery. It is prescribed for patients with a higher BMI and suffering from overweight-induced comorbidities like diabetes.

How Are Endoscopic Bariatric Surgeries Done?

Intragastric Balloon

In this procedure, the surgeon, with the help of a tiny, flexible tube with a tiny camera, inserts a silicone balloon into the stomach. Guided by images projected by the camera, the surgeon positions and fills the balloon with saline solution. This balloon gives a feeling of satiety and discourages the patient from excessive intake of food. It is a reversible procedure, and it can be taken out endoscopically after achieving the desired weight loss.

Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Like bariatric sleeve gastrectomy, in endoscopic sleeve gastrectomy too, the surgeon reduces the size of the stomach by suturing it. Aided by advanced endoscopic instruments, including a flexible, thin tube and a camera, it is done through the mouth and without an incision.


Yes. They are done within an hour, and the patient can go home after 2 hours. However, a few patients may have to spend overnight in the hospital for observation.
