Video Q&A about Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG): What it is and What it does

Drs. Barham Abu Dayyeh and Andres Acosta, Gastroenterology and Hepatology, talk about the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) procedure performed at Mayo Clinic as a non-surgical intervention for weight loss. 




The video was pretty depressing. Sad to know that if you have 20 -40 lbs to lose this is the way to go. If you have more no you must have the surgery where they cut into you take out part of a organ leaving you scars and on medications for the rest of your life. So basically if you don't really need it you can get it done, but if you really need help to prevent other medical issues you can only get surgery that will cause you other issues.
