vBloc®- A New Approach to Weight Loss
vBloc® Therapy works to control sensations of hunger using a pacemaker-like device your doctor is able to implant during a minimally invasive procedure. This device empowers you to eat less, make healthier choices and lose weight, without the lifestyle implications of traditional weight loss surgeries.
vBloc® Therapy does not alter anatomy. Your body continues to process and digest food the way it did before. This means no restrictive diets, no physical reactions to normal foods, and no long term difficult nutritional supplements needed.
vBloc® Therapy is completely reversible. It can be deactivated in case of emergency, pregnancy, or for any other reason, and can be reactivated later.
vBloc® Therapy results may include:
- Improved LDL numbers
- Lower triglycerides
- Lower blood pressure
- Lower heart rate
