ESG is an endoscopic, incisionless procedure performed by a doctor who sutures the stomach with a specialized device called the Apollo ESG™ System. ESG reduces the stomach size by approximately 70%-80% using six to eight sutures. This limits the amount of food consumed and the number of calories absorbed by the stomach. It also prolongs the time food remains in the stomach, so you feel full longer.

How It Works & What To Expect
ESG reduces the size of your stomach without incisions or scars using the FDA-authorized Apollo ESG™ System. This small suturing device attaches to a camera passed through your mouth into your stomach while you are asleep. A specially-trained doctor uses the Apollo ESG™ System to sew your stomach into a smaller shape, so you eat less and feel full faster. Watch the video to see how ESG and the Apollo ESG™ System work.
Following the ESG procedure, you’ll feel fuller when eating smaller portions and get a better understanding of just how much intake your body needs to lose weight. This helps to develop healthier eating habits moving forward, so you can enjoy sustained results.
After meeting with your doctor and nurses, you will be given medication to help you sleep and feel comfortable during the procedure.
Most patients typically can go home the same day. However, there may be some discomfort from the procedure. Do not drive or operate motorized vehicles or equipment the remainder of the day. Avoid alcoholic beverages. You may resume activity as soon as you are comfortable.
To help your stomach heal, you will be on a liquid diet for the first week or two, followed by pureed and soft foods for the next two weeks. Typically, by week four, you will be able to resume eating solid foods. Follow your doctor’s specific instructions.
With less room in your stomach, you should begin to feel full faster and lose weight. The procedure helps you to develop better eating habits and change your lifestyle for lasting results.
