What Is the Apollo OverStitch Procedure?
If your stomach pouch stretches out after weight loss surgery, Apollo OverStitch can help make it smaller. This treatment works by stitching your stomach pouch back to the size it was after your original weight loss surgery.
Apollo OverStitch is different from other revision surgeries, such as gastric sleeve surgery, because it requires no incisions. Instead, we access and revise your pouch by sliding a special device down your throat (endoscopy). Endoscopic techniques lower your risk for complications, such as infections, and help you return to daily activities in as little as 48 hours.
Is Apollo OverStitch Right for Me?
If you have not been able to keep unwanted pounds off after weight loss surgery, a revision procedure such as Apollo OverStitch may be right for you. We work with you to learn about your challenges, circumstances and medical history, and decide together if OverStitch can help.
We want you to feel confident in your decision, which is why we also ask you to consider the risks and benefits of Apollo OverStitch surgery. Dr. Lopez will discuss this information with you in detail before your procedure.
