About Bariatric Endoscopies in Arcadia, CA & Los Angeles, CA
Here at Gastrointestinal & Non-Surgical Weight Loss Solutions in Arcadia, CA, we offer a variety of endoscopic bariatric procedures that alter the size of the stomach, thereby reducing hunger and making patients feel fuller faster with less food. Some of the most popular endoscopic bariatric treatments we offer include the endoscopic gastric sleeve and the intra-gastric balloon. Unlike traditional surgeries, endoscopic bariatric treatments are minimally invasive and only require the use of a thin, flexible scope that’s inserted into the stomach through the mouth. This procedure is far safer and less likely to result in complications like traditional bariatric surgeries.
