NEW Laparoscopic Gastric Plication

A new, innovative and investigational procedure, this procedure is the least invasive bariatric surgery procedure at this time and does not require the use of a device, such as a LAP-BAND, that is left inside the body.

Gastric Plication is a minimally invasive approach that simply requires folding the stomach, creating a sleeve by holding stomach tissues together by surgical suture - a medical device that is essentially like thread. This procedure reduces the size of the stomach and limits food intake, without actually cutting the stomach or removing any parts of it.
