POSE Weight Loss Procedure

POSE Treatment For Obesity 1 Year Results

POSE Incisionless Surgery for Weight LossThe POSE (Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal) incisionless weight loss procedure is safe, effective, and well-tolerated for patients with obesity, a conclusion supported once again by the results of another study.

Endoscopic procedures such as POSE are being studied as more affordable and safer alternatives to bariatric surgery. The POSE procedure reduces the size of the stomach using special tissue anchors put in place via endoscopic methods (through the mouth) and does not require surgery or incisions. The effects are reduced stomach capacity and decreased hunger.

Advancements in Weight Loss Surgery to Help Moderately Overweight and Diabetic

Bariatric AdvancementsAlthough weight loss surgery has traditionally been considered the treatment of last resort for severe obesity, new treatments and safer techniques are making surgical intervention a potentially suitable option for a greater amount of overweight individuals. As we start a new year, it is a good time to review some of the innovative procedures that are promising to make a big change in the way we treat obesity and the related disease of type 2 diabetes.

One of the most notable new surgical approaches is the use of endoscopic methods, referred to as natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES). This surgical technique accesses the body through a natural opening, such as the mouth to reach the stomach, thus avoiding the need for incisions. Procedures such as StomaphyX and ROSE for gastric bypass revision have already been approved by the FDA, while several primary procedures are currently undergoing clinical trials. Three of the most promising are TOGA, EndoBarrier, and POSE.

POSE Weight Loss Procedure

Patients Lose Weight with New Incisionless POSE Procedure

POSE Incisionless Surgery for Weight LossYou will soon be able to lose weight via a groundbreaking incisionless, pain-free weight loss procedure known as POSE (Primary Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal). The POSE procedure reduces the size of your stomach without making a single incision into the body by utilizing special tools that access the stomach through the mouth and esophagus.

Not only does the procedure not require incisions to reduce the size of the stomach, but it is considered much safer than other surgical options. There has been virtually no complications to date and most patients are able to go back to work within a couple of days.

POSE does not require cutting like gastric bypass and the gastric sleeve or a medical implant like the LAP-BAND or REALIZE Band, yet similar results have been achieved.
