1. Dr. Marvin does NOT guarantee specific weight loss for any weight loss procedure to any specific patient. Too many factors are involved to make accurate predictions. Weight loss estimates are based on data reported in the medical literature and/or Dr. Marvin’s practice experience.
2. Dr. Marvin can make NO guarantee of the longevity for endoscopic gastroplasty. Long term data is not available for this procedure. It is possible that the weight loss effect may decrease or be lost over time.
