This revolutionary procedure is available for individuals who have had previous gastric bypass surgery and who are now regaining weight. The procedure is non invasive and does not involve any incisions. The procedure involves placing an endoscope through the mouth into the stomach pouch. The connection between the stomach pouch and small intestines is then sutured resulting in slower emptying of the stomach and earlier satiety and more weight loss. The procedure also shrinks the stomach pouch and makes it small, similar to the outcome of the original gastric bypass procedure.
