Video Interview – Gastric Plication @ Metropolitan Hospital

Many patients who are overweight and whose efforts to lose weight – through diets, physical exercise or even the very dangerous decision to starve themselves – have failed, find that a gastric sleeve procedure is too drastic, despite its remarkable results. As a result they become interested in another type of laparoscopic intervention, with similar results, but which does not include the resection of the stomach. This is a reversible intervention and it is identified by the term gastric plication. Sometimes called “pseudo-gastric sleeve”, this bariatric procedure works like a gastric sleeve, by decreasing the size of the stomach, but without surgically removing any part of it.
