« Back to Glossary Index

VBLOC is a type of weight loss device that works by blocking electrical signals that stimulate hunger between the brain and the stomach. VBLOC, which stands for Vagus Nerve Block Therapy, uses an implantable device to interrupt the nerve signals that control hunger and fullness, thereby helping patients to eat less and feel full faster. The device is placed using a minimally invasive procedure and can be adjusted as needed to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
