Endosleeve is an advanced surgical procedure used to treat overweight and obesity. This procedure is performed by experienced surgeons at Groruddalsklinikken, a renowned clinic in Norway. Endosleeve is a minimally invasive method that involves the use of a flexible endoscope to reduce the size of the stomach.
The procedure begins with the patient being given general anesthesia to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. An endoscope is then passed through the mouth and down the esophagus, and then into the stomach. The endoscope has a camera that gives the surgeon a clear picture of the inside of the stomach.
Once the endoscope is in place, the surgeon uses specialized instruments to remove part of the stomach and sew the rest together. This significantly reduces the volume of the stomach, which causes the patient to feel full more quickly and thus eat smaller amounts of food.
The Endosleeve procedure has several advantages compared to traditional weight-reducing surgeries. First and foremost, it is minimally invasive, which means that there is less risk of complications and a shorter recovery time after the procedure. Patients can usually go home the same day or the day after the operation.
Another advantage of Endosleeve is that it does not require large incisions in the abdomen. This means less scarring and less pain after the operation. In addition, there is no need to adjust or remove an implant, which is sometimes necessary with other weight-loss surgeries.
Endosleeve can be an effective tool to help patients achieve significant weight loss and improve their health. Studies have shown that this procedure can lead to a significant reduction in body weight and improvement in conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.
It is important to note that Endosleeve is not a miracle cure for obesity. It is part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes changes in diet and lifestyle. Patients must be willing to make lasting changes in eating habits and physical activity in order to maintain the weight loss in the long term.
