Chicago Weight Loss Practice Introduces Non-Surgical ORBERA™ Weight Loss System

The physicians of Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center discuss the potential of the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System to achieve longer-lasting weight reduction without surgery.

Chicago, IL — A new weight loss program seeks to revolutionize the bariatric field, according to the surgeons at Suburban Surgical Care Specialists (SSCS). They explain that conventional weight loss methods emphasize either diet and exercise modifications or provide surgical intervention. The doctors say the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System combines multiple modalities to achieve more comprehensive, lasting results without surgery. ORBERA™ is now available to qualified candidates at the physicians’ Chicago weight loss practice.

What makes ORBERA™ unique, the Chicago bariatric surgeons explain, is that it utilizes a two-pronged approach. According to the manufacturer, the procedure begins with the non-surgical insertion of a balloon-like device into the stomach, which can be inflated by filling it with a saline solution. Once filled, this balloon limits food intake and increases the feeling of satiety. The device remains in place for six months, the company says, and will then be removed. The doctors say that the following six months will be devoted to continuing the healthy eating, portion control, and exercise habits that began with the first phase. They note that this combination of medical and support techniques can achieve three times as much weight loss as using diet and exercise alone, and the results typically will be lasting.

The physicians at SSCS indicate that ORBERA™ offers numerous benefits; however, this technique is not appropriate for everyone. Patients should be 18 years of age or older, have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40, and desire a non-surgical approach to weight loss. Individuals interested in the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System, they add, should discuss their concerns with a board certified bariatric surgeon with experience in this therapy.
