Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

There is nothing as inspirational as seeing evidence of a real person’s weight loss success. Check out the first-hand experiences of these endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty patients, and see how this procedure has improved their health and quality of life.
Dr. Laster and her team at Gut Theory are simply incredible. I contacted her during COVID and was able to get a consultation scheduled within the same week. I elected to have the ESG procedure. It was scheduled before the end of the same month. With the education and coaching of Dr. Laster and Lucretia, 2 years post ESG, I have been able to maintain my 30 pound weight loss. I have reversed diabetes and have a significant reduction in my cholesterol levels and visceral fat. In addition to her incredible medical expertise, Dr. Laster is incredibly personable and friendly. She will hold you accountable to the goals you set for yourself. I have referred friends, relatives, and clients to her because I trust her and I know she is passionate about her work. I cannot say enough about my experience with her. Pay her her worth. I can attest to the absolute fact that she is worth EVERY penny

I had the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty done by Dr. Laster at the Gut Theory DC. Im so happy with my results! This procedure is not the traditional gastric sleeve as it is not a surgery. My stomach was not cut and it did not change my physical anatomy. 🤩

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is one of the safest and most advanced weight loss procedures that has been used by people across the world for more than a decade now. The procedure does not involve any incisions or cuts through the skin because it is done with the help of an endoscope and a special suturing device that is inserted into the stomach through the mouth. The ESG procedure is performed with the Apollo ESG Overstitch™ because it is the only device approved by the FDA for this purpose.

Dr. Laster is awesome. She is an expert in her field. I researched several doctors before I made my decision to go with Gut Theory Total Digestive Care.
Dr. Laster explained the ESG procedure in great detail. I was immediately put at ease. My after care was top notch, the IV the next day was a godsend. Dr. Laster called everyday for a week to make sure everything was going according to plan. I can’t say enough about the nutrition plan she provides and the aftercare. Dr. Laster is dedicated to providing patients with all of the tools for the weight loss. I am so thankful to have found Gut Theory.
