Designed with Bariatric Surgeons in Mind

Front-line restrictive procedure that preserves
gastric anatomy and  offers durable weight loss.

BarioSurg is committed to work along side with bariatric surgeons to provide optimal treatment for obesity and metabolic disorder.

More surgeons are recognizing the need for a staged procedure for managing obesity as a chronic disease. They are also recognizing that sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass is not the "be-all and end-all" single-staged procedure because bariatric practices are seeing an increased number of non-responders that are returning for a secondary procedure. The laparoscopic, minimally-invasive Gastric Vest System (GVS) procedure is designed to preserve gastric anatomy, to eliminate staple line-related complications, enhance satiety by providing restriction, and offer effective durable weight loss and quality of life with the opportunity for reversibility, thereby making the GVS an effective front-line procedure and reserving sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass as a strong second stage surgical option.
