Dr. Tomas Birriel and our team are committed to furthering patient and public health by improving the issue of obesity and related diseases. Obesity is a complex and restrictive metabolic condition that can contribute to heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and more. Many patients are unable to reduce excess weight through simple lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, which is why Dr. Tomas Birriel offers endoscopic bariatrics in Morgan City, Louisiana.
Endoscopic bariatric therapies offer a minimally invasive option for patients who struggle with obesity and are considering surgical weight loss. This branch of surgery encompasses several procedures, including:
Procedures are performed by passing an endoscope (a long, flexible tube with an attached camera, light, and surgical instruments) through the mouth and into the stomach. This allows Dr. Tomas Birriel to perform procedures in the stomach and small intestine. One of the many advantages of endoscopic bariatrics is that our general surgeon does not need to make incisions on the outer body or move internal organs and tissue to access the stomach.
If you are struggling with obesity-related issues, endoscopic bariatrics may be right for you. Many patients have found it helped them gain control of their weight loss and enjoy healthier lives.
