World-Class Experience, World-Renowned Expertise & Quality Care

Due to advances in endoscopic technology, Dr. Kenneth Binmoeller founded San Francisco Weight Loss Institute as a branch of Interventional Endoscopy Services Medical Group.

Dr. Rabindra Watson, a nationally recognized leader in endoscopic weight loss, was recruited to head the Institute and has ushered in an exciting new era of endoscopic weight loss therapy. Dr. Watson performs both the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (accordion procedure) as a primary treatment for weight loss and the Endoscopic Bariatric Revision procedure as a treatment for weight gain following other traditional weight loss surgeries.

These techniques promise safer treatments with less cost and recovery time than traditional weight loss surgery and are available to patients who may not qualify for weight loss surgery or who are unwilling to undergo an additional operation.
