The Rose Procedure
Rose stands for Restorative Obesity Surgery Endoscopic. It is an incision free revision procedure for patients who have previously had Gastric Bypass Surgery and are experiencing weight regain. The Rose Procedure is not intended as a primary weight loss surgery. Rather, it is a tool for patients who had successful weight loss after a Gastric Bypass, but have begun to regain significant weight.
How Does The Rose Procedure Work?
Weight gain after an initially successful Gastric Bypass is usually due to stretching of the stomach. If the small stomach pouch created during Gastric Bypass has stretched, then the patient loses the restrictive benefits and is able to overeat. In a Rose Procedure, the stomach is restored to the original post surgery size and the surgeon may also tighten the stomach opening to slow digestion. The Rose Procedure is performed endoscopically, which means that the surgeon inserts instruments through the patient’s mouth. While the patient is under general anesthesia, the surgeon accesses the stomach through the esophagus.
Benefits of The Rose Procedure
No incisions are made, leading to easier recovery with no visible scars
