Singapore General Hospital (SGH) will soon offer a minimally invasive procedure that helps people lose weight. It is meant for those unsuitable for surgery and will be available from October. Known as Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, the method has been trialled in three patients since August 2019. An endoscope is inserted down the throat and an attached device is used to stitch up the stomach. This reduces the size of the stomach by about 70% and restricts the amount of food intake.
