Endoscopic Suturing Registry

The Prospective Registry for Trans-Oral Endoscopic Suturing Applications will collect real-world data related to the safety and effectiveness of procedures done with Apollo Endosurgery’s OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System. This registry is a program of the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology.

While endoscopic suturing procedures are becoming more routine in gastrointestinal and surgery practices across the country, we need real-world data to make informed decisions around the continued adoption of these procedures in clinical practice.


We're looking for physicians who perform procedures using Apollo Endosurgery’s OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System to participate in this new registry.


Visit Clinicaltrials.gov to see the sites participating in this registry. You or your doctor can contact the participating sites to learn more about enrolling.
