Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is a weight loss procedure that involves reducing the size of the stomach using an endoscope. A consent form is typically provided to patients before they undergo the ESG procedure.
The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty consent form outlines the risks and benefits associated with the procedure, as well as the patient's responsibilities both during and after the procedure. It typically includes information about how the procedure works, the potential side effects and risks, and any pre-procedure instructions that need to be followed.
The Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty consent form also covers post-procedure instructions, such as how to care for the stomach in the days following the procedure and when to schedule follow-up appointments. It may also include information about potential risks and complications, such as bleeding, infection, or complications related to anaesthesia.
By signing the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty consent form, the patient acknowledges that they have been fully informed of the risks and benefits of the procedure and agree to proceed with the procedure. It is important for patients to read the consent form carefully and ask any questions they may have before signing it to ensure that they fully understand the details of the procedure and what is expected of them before, during, and after the procedure.
