The StomaphyX™ procedure is a way to reduce the size of the stomach without incisions by accessing the stomach transorally, or through the mouth. This innovative method is an ideal bariatric revision surgery technique because it can be used to further reduce the stomach pouch without subjecting the patient to additional invasive surgery. The recovery period after the StomaphyX™ procedure is minimal and the risks of infection or post-operative bleeding are virtually eliminated.
