For More Information

Endoscopic weight loss procedures are a promising new option for people who want help losing weight but don't want -- or may not qualify for -- bariatric surgery. These nonsurgical procedures may also be an option for people who:

  • Are in earlier stages of obesity
  • Have a BMI between 30 and 40
  • Don't have obesity-related medical conditions

Endoscopic weight loss procedures achieve better weight loss than medication but not as much as bariatric surgery. Because they are newer procedures, more data is needed on how they perform over the long term. Endoscopic procedures are not covered by insurance at this time.
