Transoral outlet reduction (TORe) is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure. It treats weight regain after a patient has undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery.

Over time, the small opening (“stoma”) that connects the stomach pouch to the small intestine can stretch. It causes patients to consume more food, leading to weight regain. TORe aims to reduce the size of this enlarged stoma. It restores the feeling of fullness after eating a small amount of food.

TORe is minimally invasive. It can lead to shorter recovery times than traditional surgery. It can help patients who have regained weight after RYGB to lose weight again. It does this by reducing the stomach’s capacity. In turn, this can improve obesity-related health conditions. Some of these are diabetes and high blood pressure. It can help with sleep apnea and other diseases as well.

Candidates for TORe are people who have previously undergone RYGB. They have experienced significant weight regain due to the enlargement of the stomach pouch. TORe is not a standalone solution for weight loss. It is a tool to assist in broader lifestyle changes. This includes maintaining a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen.
