Stomaphy X Worth It?

I was reading about endoscopic pouch reduction with the Stomaphy X device. For someone who has regained some weight post-gastric bypass surgery and wondering if Stomaphy X works/ is worth it?

Stomaphyx doesn't work

I was one of the first surgeons in the country to perform Stomaphyx and it doesn't work.   When we rescoped patients it looked like you did nothing a few months later.  We no longer  perform Stomaphyx. This has been replaced with the ROSE procedure with much better results.
