What is StomaphyX?

What is StomaphyX?

The StomaphyX device is an endoluminal fastener and delivery system that consists of an ergonomic, flexible fastener delivery device and sterile polypropylene fastener implants.

The procedure to insert the StomaphyX device is the first FDA-approved non-invasive bariatric procedure for weight loss.

Using a fiberoptic gastroscope the esophagus and stomach are easily accessed. The StomaphyX device is designed to go down into the stomach with the fiberoptic endoscope. Once inside the stomach pouch, the StomaphyX tool pleats and staples the stomach to make the pouch smaller.

StomaphyX may benefit:

  • Gastric Bypass patients who have regained weight or want to lose more weight
  • Duodenal Switch patients who want more restriction
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy patients who want more restriction in the remaining stomach

StomaphyX features include:

  • Transoral insertion
  • Delivers unlimited fasteners with single insertion
  • Adjustable and /or revisable transorally
  • No abdominal incisions
  • No internal incisions
