CLARKSTON, Mich., April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2016 The FDA approved the newest non-surgical advancement in Weight Loss procedures called AspireAssist.
Endoscopic Solutions, based in Clarkston MI, is the first practice in Michigan since FDA approval to perform this groundbreaking procedure. With the AspireAssist Weight Loss Program, patients on average can expect to lose about 40% of their excess weight in the first 6 months. In clinical trials, the most successful patients- those that made substantial lifestyle changes and used the device regularly- lost over 100 pounds in the first year.
Dr. Veslav Stecevic MD, founder and president of Endoscopic Solutions, performed the first two AspireAssist procedures in Michigan, marking the first Michigan resident and Ohio resident to receive the therapy since FDA approval. Dr. Stecevic discusses the AspireAssist Program – "We are very excited to be the first medical practice in Michigan 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. AspireAssist Program includes physician follow up and monthly nutrition counseling, in person or through our partnered online nutrition and fitness counseling service 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."
During a quick, 15 minute procedure in the surgery center, 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. 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.
