Since we did the UK’s first ESG procedure in 2016 we’ve been monitoring results as we go.
We’ve been delighted with the outcomes and we’ve seen some spectacular success stories. Read about one of those success stories here.
Weight loss results* have been excellent with most patients losing in excess of 60% of their excess weight within 2 years of having ESG. For this reason the vast majority are delighted with the decision they have made.
The weight loss results are comparable with those of the established surgical procedures. The main benefit of ESG however is that it's not surgery so patients benefit from a faster recovery time and lower post-operative risks, both incidence rate and severity.
We are therefore expecting the ESG to grow rapidly in popularity and for the number of procedures we do to increase accordingly.
Like most weight loss procedures there is a small failure rate and this is in the range of 10% - 20% depending on the particular procedure in question. Unfortunately, it's impossible to identify this small minority of patients in advance.
Patients of all procedures go ahead in this knowledge. With a commitment to follow the pre and post op diet regime you increase your chances of being in the majority of patients who are successful with ESG.
