HOUSTON, Sept. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- True Results, a leading provider of bariatric weight loss solutions, announced that it has completed the first ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon procedures in Houston, Texas on September 9, 2015.  The procedures were performed at Physicians SurgiCenter of Houston by True Results affiliated physicians Dr. Erik B. Wilson and Dr. Christopher L. Reilly

Cheryl, a mom of four who lives in Houston had the procedure with Dr. Wilson.  When asked about her weight struggles, she said, "Life just got real busy.  I was married, had kids and my life was pretty hectic.   All of a sudden the weight just creeped up.  When I really noticed that I had an issue is when I put on my favorite jeans and I couldn't button them at all.  I thought who is wearing these jeans? This isn't me. I knew I had to do something.  I couldn't wait any longer.  It was time."

"I first heard about True Results on the radio, on my computer, on the television," said Cheryl.  "I saw the big smiles on the women and I thought what's making them so happy?  What are they doing to lose the weight?  And so that's what prompted me to contact True Results. I wanted my smile to be that big again.  When I knew that I could have this procedure done.  No scars, just easy breezy.  This was the procedure for me."

"I'm happy to be working here with True Results on one of our first balloon patients," said Erik B. Wilson, M.D., F.A.C.S., a True Results affiliated surgeon from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston.  "We are putting in a balloon to help her lose weight.  The balloon will be in her stomach for approximately six months.  We're excited to give patients another option, an incisionless procedure for weight loss that allows our patients to achieve their weight loss goals."

"This is a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to weight loss that's just one more tool in the fight against obesity in America," said Christopher L. Reilly, M.D., F.A.C.S, a True Results affiliated surgeon from West Houston Surgical Associates.  "ORBERA™ was recently approved by the FDA in the United States, but the procedure has been done over 220,000 times worldwide and it's a leading technique around the world for weight loss.  We're very proud in Houston to be able to offer this now at True Results." 

Dr. Reilly continued, "If you're an individual that has struggled with weight loss and is reluctant to undergo surgical weight loss procedures, this is a great tool for you.  It is reversible, non-surgical and if you're an individual who needs to lose 30 pounds and has had trouble doing it, then this is a great option for you."

There have only been four ORBERA™ intragastric balloon procedures completed in Texas since it was approved by the FDA in August 2015.   All four were performed by True Results physicians in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston.  True Results physicians have also completed three ORBERA™ procedures in St. Louis and two in Atlanta.
