ATLANTA, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- True Results, a leading provider of bariatric weight loss solutions, announced that it has completed the first ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon procedure in Georgia on September 10, 2015. The procedure was performed at the Surgery Center of Atlanta by True Results affiliated surgeon Dr. Titus D. Duncan.
When asked about her weight struggles, Latonya, a working mom from Atlanta, said, "I have family history with being overweight. And after having my children, the weight just caught up. And that's kind of where I am right now. I want to lose the weight and get my confidence back."
Latonya continued, "My husband often tells me how beautiful I am, but I just don't see it. I'm not used to being in this heavier body. I know that the weight loss balloon is going to give me that little boost to help me get to where I need to be. I really want my mojo back."
"I'm working together today with True Results to perform the first ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon procedure here in Atlanta," said expert weight loss surgeon Titus D. Duncan, M.D., F.A.C.S., FASMBS. "The ORBERA™ balloon stays in your stomach for six months, so you can lose the weight safely and quickly. It is a great option for patients who need to lose weight to improve their health but are not interested in weight loss surgery. Losing weight can help with high blood pressure and Type II Diabetes."
"The intragastric balloon procedure is a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to weight loss that's just one more tool in the fight against obesity in America," said Dr. Duncan. "The ORBERA™ balloon has helped over 220,000 patients worldwide over the last 20 years and was recently approved by the FDA for patients in the U.S. We are very proud at True Results to now offer this great weight loss option to patients in Atlanta."
True Results surgeons have performed more ORBERA™ intragastric balloon procedures than any other bariatric weight loss provider since FDA approval in August. True Results has performed ORBERA™ procedures in Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and St. Louis.
