The StomaphyX procedure is a surgical method of fastening tissue and creating large folds in the gastrointestinal tract without incisions. The StomaphyX procedure is performed safely, quickly, comfortably, with no incisions and with minimal downtime. While under anesthesia, the flexible StomaphyX device will gently be lowered through your mouth into your stomach under the visualization of an endoscope “video” placed down the shaft of the device. A small section of the stomach wall will then be suctioned up into the StomaphyX device and fastened with a suture-like fastener to create a fold called a placation. This will be repeated 10-20 times or more. Most patients can return to work the next day or within a few days following their procedure.
