Primary Obesity Surgical Endoluminal


The POSE Procedure (Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal) is one the most advanced incision less surgical weight loss procedures available to patients today. POSE can be used for patients who have lower BMI and are seeking more conservative weight loss results, making it an attractive alternative to more invasive weight loss surgeries like the Lap Band and Sleeve Gastrectomy procedures.

No incisions, no scarring, no bandages and nobody will know you underwent weight loss surgery.

The POSE procedure is appropriate for patients that have not had weight loss surgery in the past, and want the weight loss benefits without the pain and scarring of traditional and laparoscopic surgeries.

POSE weight loss surgery involves reducing the size of the stomach through an endoscopic method that requires no external incisions. The entire procedure is performed through the patient’s mouth. Stomach reduction, as with other weight loss surgeries, helps diminish the patient’s feelings of hunger and reduces caloric consumption.

Patients will be under general anaesthesia throughout surgery. During the procedure, the doctor will use an endoscope, a small flexible tube equipped with a light and camera that allows him to view the operative site on a nearby monitor. Additional surgical tools will be inserted orally to grasp the stomach tissue and position POSE suture anchors, ultimately creating several tissue folds in the stomach wall and reducing its capacity.

Many patients begin to see weight loss within the first four weeks after the POSE procedure.

The minimally invasive approach of this incision less surgery reduces the likelihood of complications and risks often associated with other open or laparoscopic surgical procedures. Your surgeon will discuss all risks and complications of the POSE procedure during your initial visits.
