Apollo Method

What is the Apollo method?

The Apollo method is a multidisciplinary technique through which a stomach reduction is made orally, so open surgery is avoided. For this, sutures are made in the internal cavity of the stomach. Thus, it is an endoscopic intervention that is performed under general anesthesia. Why is it done? The APOLLO method is especially intended for those patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 30 and 40. It allows to reduce the capacity of the stomach by 60-70%.

What does it consist of?

The APOLLO method consists of an oral stomach reduction that offers a series of advantages over traditional stomach reduction, such as: safe and minimally invasive technique, less pain and risk of infection, absence of external scars, recovery in a shorter period, short hospital stay.

Preparation for the Apollo method

To undergo the Apollo method the patient has to be fasted for 8 hours, and maintain a liquid diet one or two days before. In addition, the pertinent preoperative tests (EGR, analysis, etc.) will be carried out.

Care after the intervention

Recovery after surgery is less than that of laparoscopic bariatric surgery, and usually the patient can be incorporated into his routine after 24 hours. Subsequently, a controlled follow-up is carried out for a long time.
