Weight Regain after Gastric Bypass (TORe)

Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe) is an endoscopic procedure indicated for patients who have regained weight after gastric bypass

When a gastric bypass is performed, the stomach is connected to the small bowel, this connection is called gastrojejunal anastomosis or “outlet”. Over time, this outlet becomes larger and patients do not feel full, this contributes to overeating, hence they regain weight. 

TORe is a simple endoscopic procedure in which the outlet is reduced to its original size placing sutures around the gastrojejunal anastomosis. These will restore the sensation of “fullness” while eating. 

The procedure is very brief (approximately 30-45 minutes) compared to a complicated revisional sugery and is done under sedation (not general anesthesia).

After the procedure you will be able to go home.
