When is Endoscopic Revision Surgery?

Also referred to as the ROSE or Apollo procedure, this option is the most minimally invasive. In order to access the pouch of the stomach, a lighted instrument called an endoscope is placed through the mouth and down the esophagus. Attached to the end of the endoscope is a device that sutures the opening of the stoma to make it more narrow. This restricts the amount that can be eaten at once and creates satiety. Patients are able to return home the day after the ROSE procedure and resume normal activities within a few days. However, follow up care is critical to make sure the stomach diameter does not increase.
