United States, Texas, Dallas – 06-21-2019 ( — Dr. Prashant Kedia, MD is proud to announce that he is now offering an innovative alternative to Gastric Sleeve. Dr. Kedia is a Gastroenterologist and has come up with an innovative way, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), which offers better results.

“In my practice, I’ve seen many complications from the gastric sleeve. I knew there had to be a better way. Finally we have a safer and low cost alternative in ESG!” – Dr. Kedia.

Reducing weight through physical exercises could be very strenuous for some people. Overweight persons may find it very difficult to go to the gym or engage in rigorous exercises to lose weight. Also, engaging in exercises to reduce weight could take a lot of energy and a long time. This could be a hectic task and you may not have the luxury of time to go to the gym as much as required, and this is a limitation as it hinders you from losing weight.

ESG and Gastric Sleeve are other ways to reduce weight significantly and in a short time. These two procedures are done to reduce excess weight. However, ESG is preferred by most patients. A lot of patients prefer to undergo ESG over gastric sleeve.

ESG is a non-surgical bariatric procedure which is done by the use of an endoscopic suturing device to reduce the stomach size. In this procedure, part of the stomach is not cut off, instead, the stomach shrinks and this reduces the amount of food the stomach can contain. The procedure entails the surgeon placing sutures in the stomach with the help of an endoscope. The sutures then shrink the stomach and reduce its size, hence drastically reducing the food the patient can eat.

A lot of clients prefer ESG to Gastric Sleeve for several reasons. For one, there is no incision in ESG, unlike the Gastric Sleeve that involve incisions. There is no cut on the abdomen. Your stomach is totally free from scars and you don’t need to worry about clearing off the scars sustained from the procedure.

Dr. Prashant Kedia MD specializes in a wide range of gastroenterological treatment and provides professional, compassionate care for patients in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
