New developments and techniques in the field of bariatric surgery provide less invasive procedures, faster healing times, and reduced risk of tissue and surrounding organ damage. One such technique is called endoscopic bariatric surgery. The bariatric surgical subspecialty has been used by Dr. Marco Sariñana Guridi of Mexicali Obesity Solutions for a number of years. Dr. Sariñana specializes in metabolic surgery, diabetes treatment, hypertension, high cholesterol and fatty liver disease treatments combined with weight loss surgical procedures in Mexico.
Dr. Sariñana realizes that obesity and weight gain creates multiple body function issues, including sleep apnea, increased risk of hypertension, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease, as well as increased risks of diabetes, the need for insulin injections, and other conditions that may eventually lead to joint damage as well as multi-system organ damage.
Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery: A Brief Overview
One of the newer techniques in bariatric surgical procedures, the endoscopic approach to bariatric surgery is considered minimally invasive, and is actually considered a nonsurgical approach to treat obesity through the restriction of the size of the stomach. A tube called an endoscope is inserted into the mouth and threaded into the stomach, enabling bariatric surgeons to reduce the size of the stomach without incisions through the process of stapling. The procedure is known as Transoral Gastroplasty (aka TOGA), and is currently undergoing Phase III clinical trials in the United States, though the technique has been utilized by international bariatric surgeons, including Italy, Belgium and Mexico since 2006.
