Non invasive weight loss surgery

Surgeons have discovered a way to staple the stomach into a thumb-sized tube by using instruments that go through the patient’s mouth and down their throat.

No cutting is required and the stapling of the stomach makes the patient’s feel full after eating minimal amounts of food. However, the surgery is only for those dangerously obese.

This innovative procedure helps patients experience less pain and speeds up the recovery time.
