Revision Weight Loss Surgery: Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe)

What Is Transoral Outlet Reduction endoscopy (TORe) for Revision Weight Loss Surgery?

Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe) is a specialized revision weight loss procedure designed to help individuals who have previously undergone weight loss surgery but are not experiencing the desired weight loss or have encountered weight regain. It is a minimally invasive technique performed through the mouth, without the need for additional incisions or external scars.

During the TORe procedure, advanced tools and an endoscope are used to modify the size of the gastric outlet, the passage that connects the stomach to the small intestine. By narrowing the gastric outlet, TORe restricts the flow of food from the stomach to the small intestine, promoting a sense of fullness and facilitating portion control. This revision procedure aims to enhance weight loss outcomes and assist patients in achieving their weight management goals.

What are the advantages of Transoral Outlet Reduction endoscopy (TORe) or a Revision Weight Loss Procedure?

Minimally Invasive

TORe is a non-surgical procedure, which means it does not require traditional incisions or external scars. By utilizing an endoscope inserted through the mouth, TORe minimizes the risk of complications and facilitates a quicker recovery compared to traditional revision weight loss surgeries.

Customizable and Reversible

TORe allows for individual customization based on the patient's specific needs. The size of the gastric outlet can be tailored to address the unique challenges faced by each patient. Furthermore, TORe is a reversible procedure, providing flexibility for further adjustments if necessary.
