Gastric bypass surgery is an excellent weight-loss procedure that can add years back to one's life. However, certain patients may need a tune-up to keep the weight off. A revolutionary, non-invasive procedure called "Natural Orifice Surgery" (NOS) is available at Chilton Hospital to help bariatric surgery patients stay at a healthy weight.
With NOS, the physician lowers a device called a "StomaphyX" into the patient's stomach through the mouth. Guided by an endoscope, the FDA-approved StomaphyX acts like a tiny sewing machine to shrink the stomach by stitching up folds of tissue. No pain medications are necessary. There is often no recovery period whatsoever. Chilton Hospital was the first hospital in Morris County to offer the StomaphyX procedure.
