Although obesity rates are growing across the world, endoscopic modalities to treat obesity and its metabolic consequences are advancing rapidly. Multiple devices and techniques dedicated to weight management are being developed and have either been approved for use or are undergoing clinical trial. This article reviews many of these endoscopic interventions in bariatric surgery, including gastric aspiration devices, incisionless magnetic anastomotic systems, endoluminal bypass barrier sleeves, primary surgery obesity endoluminal, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, and duodenal mucosal resurfacing. These effective techniques may serve either as a primary therapy or as a bridge to bariatric surgery.
