StomaphyX - Gastric Bypass Revision Surgery

Home - Weight Loss Surgery Options - Stomaphyx Surgery

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.

Benefits of the StomaphyX procedure include:

  • No need for abdominal or internal surgical incisions.
  • Enables the surgeon to reduce the size of the stomach.
  • Preserves future treatment options.
  • In most cases, is performed on an outpatient basis.
  • Essentially painless.
  • Faster recovery than with open or laparaoscopic procedures.
  • Provides for unique procedures for different anatomies
  • Adjustable and/or revisable.
  • The StomaphyX device is an endoluminal fastener and delivery system that consists of an ergonomic, flexible fastener delivery device and sterile polypropylene fastener implants. It enables the strongest tissue bond and provides you with the highest levels of durability. StomaphyX is quickly setting the new standard for bariatric surgery.
