Nowadays, permanently reducing the size of the stomach is no longer a medical challenge. However, it is much more important to be able to reposition the stomach with the least possible restrictions, the shortest downtimes and without long-term consequences for the patient. This is exactly where the Weight Doctors come in: Because with our Weight Doctors SLEEVE®, which is exclusively available at Weight Doctors in Cape Town, our patients can not only expect a highly professional treatment with a permanent reduction effect in the stomach. Our patients also benefit from our 10 years of experience with this stomach reduction technology. The Weight Doctors are the only ones whose treatment team has been involved in the development of the pose®2 Endo-Sleeve procedure from the very beginning and has contributed with scientific studies to the success of this procedure today. The technique was developed in the USA and is commercially offered only by Weight Doctors in Cape Town. With the concentrated knowledge of our specialists, we support you in achieving your personal dream weight – for the rest of your life.
But how exactly does the Weight Doctor SLEEVE® work? In this method, the stomach is carefully shirred by means of special threads and specially developed anchors, thus giving it the shape of a tube. This procedure is carried out during an ordinary gastroscopy without any major health risks. The small operation is completed after about 45 minutes and you can go home to your loved ones the same day. In this way, a reduction of the stomach volume by up to 60 percent can be achieved, with only minor effects on the body.
Our method has two effects: The stomach is not only effectively narrowed in the silhouette of a tube. It is also shortened in length. This has the effect that, by changing the entrance and exit of the stomach, significantly less food can be absorbed by the stomach overall. You are full much faster and the feeling of hunger comes much later.
The pose®2 Endo-Sleeve procedure has already been used more than 12,000 times worldwide. The Weight Doctors are proud to be the first commercial provider in Cape Town to offer its successor, the Weight Doctors SLEEVE® as we roll out our landmark medical offering throughout South Africa.
Weight Doctors SLEEVE® reduces the volume of the stomach by more than half. The stomach is specifically tightened and takes on the shape of a sleeve. Satiety lasts longer and digestion in the stomach is prolonged. This drastically reduces the risk of food cravings. In addition, the Weight Doctors SLEEVE® has other decisive benefits:

Undergoing weight loss treatment is a big decision, often patients have considered it for years before taking the plunge.
For a long time patients were presented only with surgical options for obesity. Whilst these options can be good, they are also invasive. Weight Doctors® recognised early on that a large potion of weight loss patients are generally healthy with a BMI lower than 50. A minimally invasive, yet powerful procedure suits these patients perfectly.
Weight Doctors® were amongst the first European specialists to provide Endoscopic treatment for weight loss and have grown to be the largest with centres across South Africa, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and beyond. Not only that, Endoscopic treatment is our speciality and passion.
Working with International experts such as Dr Devinder Bansi, Professor Karl Miller and Professor Jan Willem Greve soon saw Weight Doctors® at the cutting edge of endoscopic treatment and performing cases in high volume.
Now the Weight Doctors SLEEVE® sits alongside traditional surgical weight loss methods, is approved for use within most national and medical guidelines worldwide including the U.S. and attracts around 10'000 patients each year.
With all this said, the Weight Doctors SLEEVE® is an intricate procedure only to be performed by experts who carry out the procedure routinely and with an excellent clinical team. At Weight Doctors®, patients can be confident of this expert team, alongside excellent clinical facilities and industry leading aftercare.
