True Results, a leading provider of bariatric weight loss solutions, announced it has completed the first non-surgical True Balloon procedure with the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon in Texas
The procedure was performed on August 26, 2015 by True Results surgeon Dr. Adam Smith at Baylor Surgicare at Richardson.
This is the first procedure of its kind in Texas since the FDA approved the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon System and the ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon System for use with weight loss patients in the US.
"True Results and its affiliated physicians are committed to providing innovative weight loss solutions and exceptional care for our patients," said Peter R. Gottlieb, Chairman of True Results.
"Over the past twelve years we have helped over 40,000 patients lose weight and get healthier with outpatient LAP-BAND® and gastric sleeve procedures.
"With the recent FDA approval of the ORBERA balloon system, True Results is pleased to offer the very latest in non-surgical weight loss. We look forward to providing this innovative new weight loss solution to our patients in Texas, Arizona, Missouri and Georgia."
"True Results provides a comprehensive team approach," explained Erin Marley, a registered nurse and weight loss expert at True Results. "In addition to having the ORBERA balloon, we’ll have nutritionists, exercise physiologists, lots of people who are ready and willing and wanting to help you succeed in your weight loss journey."
"I’m very excited and pleased to be the first physician to place the ORBERA balloon in Texas since approval by the FDA," said True Results surgeon Dr. Adam Smith.
True Results surgeon Dr. Robert Snow, who also participated in US clinical trials and is certified with ORBERA, explains, "The ORBERA Intragastric Balloon is approved by the FDA for patients who have a BMI between 30-40 and the procedure is performed in an outpatient medical setting under mild sedation.
The procedure is completed in 20-30 minutes and the patient goes home the same day. The balloon stays in the stomach for 6 months helping the patient feel satisfied with smaller meals."
