Dr Sameer Islam Reshape vs Obera
I want to talk to you today about reshape versus some of the other balloons that are out there I know it can be confusing because there are a lot of balloons out there in the market and some people can wonder why should I pick one balloon versus the other what are the main differences between each balloon and in this talk I want to explain to you why I think we shape may be a better option out there as some of the other balloon so reshape offers the dual balloon technology in which we have two balloons that are placed within the stomach this is different from other balloons that are out there because this in my opinion allows more space to take up within the stomach to allow people to feel fuller quicker but more importantly if one of the balloon deflates prematurely .
This dual balloon technology will allow the balloon to stay within the stomach now proceed on into the rest of the GI tract causing some sort of obstruction to occur this may not be the case but some of the other balloons have only one single balloon within the stomach the second advantage I think that reshape offers is the patient portal now reship has a comprehensive patient portal for our patient so that we can monitor their weight loss
They can keep track of it themselves there’s also a support group for reshape to allow our patients to get support for some of the questions that they may have or to understand what other people have experienced while having the balloons in there we also provide healthy living tips for our patients to make sure they can maximize the weight loss it is hoping to achieve allows our patients to track their goals and to track their weight-loss it also allows us to do the same as well each patient will receive a Fitbit tracker
A Fitbit Wireless scale but you can monitor your progress that you’re making and also we can monitor the progress through the portal as well what I’ve found for a lot of my patients is that knowing the progression that they’re making with the weight loss that they’re losing is very important and critical to maintain the momentum more more ways when you can see on the scale how you’re doing that will motivate you to do more and more and more and I found a lot of my patients but this to be a critical aspect for that each one of these devices will sync with the unique patient portal to allow us and to allow you to monitor your progress so we can know early on how you’re doing
And maybe if things are not going the way that we want we can intervene quickly to hopefully maintain the weight loss and to keep you on the goals we want you to achieve now ourselves and the other balloons also offer the 1-year nutritional counseling and for any balloon that you may want to choose it’s critically important in maintaining weight loss having that nutritional consultation once a month for a full year provides you with tips for how to lose weight it’s also more importantly provides you with accountability if you’re not accountable for the weight loss that you’re hoping to achieve you are not going to lose that weight I tell all my patients it’s critical.
You maintain the nutrition console for the full year because that will let allow us to maximize amount of weight we’re hoping to achieve and like most of the other balloons in the market the balloons are plates in there for six months and so the reshape is the only balloon out there that allows two balloons to be placed in something and with that a lot of patients feel a greater feeling of fullness after smaller meals and so because of that we’re able to use more and more waste and addition the two balloons can form the natural shape to stomach providing better comfort for our patients and because it’s more comfortable for our patients it improves their ability to tolerate the balloon for a longer period.
One of the more important things that I found is that having the two balloon configuration greatly reduces the risk of the device migrating or causing an obstruction so once again the Zulu technology by the greater feeling of fullness after smaller meals conforms the natural shape of the stomach providing greater comfort improves the ability to tolerate the balloon for the full length of time and then lastly the two balloon figuration greatly reduces the risk or device migration or causing obstruction so in summary I’m very excited to offer reaching to our patients it’s a new dual balloon technology that in addition we offer one-year comprehensive nutritional consultation to allow our patient to lose the weight they’re hoping to achieve.
And all this is done without any need for any type of surgical intervention thank you for listening to this video if any question feel free to call us we’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have if any other questions concerns you can always go to my website as well where I have more information about reshapes and what we can do to hopefully allow us to achieve your weight loss goal
