First Medical Practice to Perform Non Surgical Weight Loss Solution - AspireAssist

New York Bariatric Group is the First Medical Practice in America Since FDA Approval to Perform Non Surgical Weight Loss Solution - AspireAssist

Rosyln Heights, NY - The FDA has approved the newest non surgical advancement in Weight Loss procedures called AspireAssist. New York Bariatric Group based in Roslyn Heights, NY is the first practice since FDA approval in the country to be offering this groundbreaking procedure. Along with the AspireAssist Weight Loss Program developed by Dr. Shawn Garber, Dr. Jeffery Chiao and Dr. John Angstadt of New York Bariatric Group, patients on average can expect to lose about 40% of their excess weight in the first 6 months.

Dr. Shawn Garber, founder and director of the New York Bariatric Group and one of the country's premier bariatric surgeons, discusses the AspireAssist Program – We are very excited to be the first medical practice in the United States to perform the AspireAssist procedure, a revolutionary non surgical option for patients wanting to lose weight. AspireAssist allows patients to remove about 30% of the food from the stomach after eating and before the calories are absorbed into the body, thus causing weight loss. Our unique AspireAssist Program includes physician follow up and monthly nutrition counseling, in person or through our unique Virtual Health Platform. We have the ability to see patients from across the country since we can offer virtual online nutrition and fitness counseling service through Virtual Health Partners (www.virtualhealthpartners.com). This makes it even more convenient to provide the aftercare to patients from the comforts of their own home."

Dr. Chiao explains – "During a quick, 15 minute procedure in the office, a thin tube is placed in the patient's stomach that connects the inside of the stomach directly to a discreet button on the outside of the abdomen. After eating a meal, a small device, (about the size of a smartphone), enables the patient to empty, or "aspirate", up to 30% of their meal into the toilet through this tube by connecting the device to the button. Dr. Angstadt added, "Once desired weight loss is obtained, the tube can be taken out or remain in place and continued to be used indefinitely. It's up to the patient to decide."
