Bariatric Surgery

Gastric bypass and tubular gastrectomy.

Endoscopic Surgery

Intragastric balloon and POSE method.

The POSE method (primary endoluminal obesity surgery) is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure that reduces the size and the capacity of the stomach. The patient feels a minor hunger sensation, meaning they then consume the minimum amount of food before feeling full. Through a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle, the weightloss will be progressive and permanent.

The POSE method is especially designed for overweight people, not including morbidly obese cases, and people that can’t seem to achieve weight loss through just diet and exercise.

If you are overweight or obese ( grade I and II ) , and you have followed different diets but they have always failed , and if you 've had an intragastric balloon treatment and the weight lost is recovered again and you 've decided to recover back your health and gain back your confidence and improve your quality of life, the POSE method certainly is your right choice.

  • Permanent Results
  • No hospitalization
  • No open surgery, only endoscopic
  • You can perform your normal activities again after 48 hours
