1 – Intragastric Balloon
An intragastric balloon is a non-surgical weight loss procedure in which a deflated silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach and then filled with saline solution to create a feeling of fullness and reduce food intake. The procedure is temporary and typically lasts for six months, after which the balloon is removed.
It is often used as a tool for patients who have struggled with weight loss through traditional methods and may be a stepping stone to a healthier lifestyle.
2 – Orbera®
Orbera® is a brand of the intragastric balloon that is used as a non-surgical weight loss procedure. It involves inserting a deflated silicone balloon into the stomach and then inflating it with saline solution to create a feeling of fullness and reduce food intake.
Orbera® is temporary and typically remains in the stomach for six months, after which it is removed. It is often used in conjunction with a supervised diet and exercise program and may help patients jumpstart their weight loss journey.
3 – X-Tack™
X-Tack™ is a unique medical device that provides enhanced fixation through a suture-based, deep submucosal, and intramuscular approach. This approach is made possible through the use of a standard gastroscope or colonoscope, making it a minimally invasive procedure for patients. X-Tack™ utilizes small, titanium implants that are inserted into the targeted area of the spine, promoting stabilization and fusion.
This approach offers spinal surgeons greater versatility in addressing a variety of spinal conditions, including degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, and spinal fractures while minimizing the need for larger incisions and reducing patient recovery time.
