The following page is just for your information since the cost for implantation of the gastric plication is not covered by your insurance and therefore can not be performed at the Klinik Landstrasse.
This procedure is a new innovation in the treatment of obesity. Gastric plication is not an operation in the conventional sense. This procedure can be performed completely endoscopically as part of a gastroscopy. Put simply, the stomach is sewn endoscopically closer. The results are promising so far. This procedure is an alternative for patients with less overweight who failed with conservative therapy (diet, exercise, behavioral therapy) and refuse bariatric surgery. In order to achieve a satisfactory weight reduction in the long term, a lifelong aftercare is necessary.
