The only system FDA-authorized to endoscopically address a previous gastric bypass.
The TORe procedure
Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe) is an endoscopic procedure to revise a previous Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and
is performed with the Apollo ReviseTM System.
TORe leaves no scars and helps you get back on track by fixing anatomic changes that may have caused weight gain.
A surgeon or gastroenterologist performs Transoral Outlet Reduction using a camera inserted down your mouth and special, FDA-authorized device to narrow the connection between your stomach and small intestines. This can help you lose weight again or stop you from gaining more weight.
No incisions or scars
Same-day procedure for many patients
Return to normal activities a few days after procedure
Lower adverse event rate than traditional surgical approaches1

More than 150 clinical papers and abstracts have been published on TORe.3
Apollo Revise is the first and only device authorized by the FDA to perform TORe in patients with obesity (BMI 30 – 50 kg/m2).
A surgeon or gastroenterologist performs Transoral Outlet Reduction
to reduce the size of the anatomy connecting your stomach to small
intestines. This can support weight loss or stop weight regain.
Similar results and improved safety over laparascopic revision approaches.4
Patients lose an average of 6% total body weight at 12 months, according to a large study.5
Newer studies with the latest technique show 9-12% total body weight loss at 12 months.6,7
Long-term studies show patients maintaining weight loss at 5 and 7 years after a TORe procedure.6,8
