Hi All:

Has anyone had this procedure at Johns Hopkins? If so, what are you thoughts? I've been wavering a lot on having it done but feel ready to make it happen!

Johns Hopkins is a premiere research hospital. In fact, it's sort of THE research hospital. https://ncsesdata.nsf.gov/profiles/site?method=rankingBySource&ds=herd They spend more money on medical research and development than any other global entity.

Zaa, agree with Creekimp13, Johns Hopkins is a world class medical facility so I would have no concerns about the hospital performing this procedure. It's an endoscope, relatively minimally invasive, so there's no incision to heal or be concerned with. What is more important IMHO is the doctor who will be performing this procedure on you.

Do you know who this would be? Are you familiar with their experience with ESG or Vertical Sleeve Gastronomy? Typical questions are how many procedures they have done? What is the rate and type of complications that their patients have experienced?

Feel free to ask questions we would be glad to help. Thx Tex

I’ve had a consultation for the ESG here a few months back. I was very interested in getting the procedure done. However, I just didn’t have $16,000 to pay up front all at once. Otherwise I would’ve went ahead with it.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
