The OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System enables advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing physicians to place full-thickness sutures through a flexible endoscope. With this new technology, you can provide secure approximation of tissue endoscopically. The OverStitch™ System is enabling a wide range of less invasive solutions for your patients. OverStitch™ offers solutions for defects in both the upper and lower GI tract, including closing Fistulas, Bariatric Sleeve Revisions, Outlet and Pouch Reductions, and primary procedure Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG).  

The ORBERA® Managed Weight Loss Program is a medical procedure for weight loss that focuses on developing long-term, sustainable, healthy habits. The comprehensive, two-part program starts with a soft, intra-gastric balloon placed in the patient's stomach for six months to encourage portion control. This is then supported by a team of experts to help guide patients through the process. Clinical evidence suggests an average weight loss of 10-15kg in 6 months, however this is dependent on the patients starting weight and how well they adapt to the lifestyle changes. ORBERA® is indicated for patients with a BMI of 27 and above.
