Article Detailing the Limits on New Weight Loss Device Highlights the Reliability of Traditional Bariatric Surgery, Says Beverly Hills Physicians

In an article published July 12 on, the writer outlined a new weight loss surgery technique that uses electrical signals to manipulate the brain into craving less food. Throughout the article, the author explains that, while this new procedure has been approved by the FDA in regards to its safety, more research still needs to be done surrounding the real-world effectiveness as it pertains to actually helping obese individuals lose weight. According to Beverly Hills Physicians (BHP), this is an appropriate and insightful approach to this new technology, especially considering how effective and safe other, well-studied methods of weight loss surgery are for patients. BHP notes several reasons why the research surrounding such procedures as the sleeve gastrectomy makes bariatric surgery the best option for most patients when considering a weight loss procedure.

  • Safety – In the early days of bariatric surgery, many casuals observers held the questionable perception that the procedures were unsafe and entirely too drastic, notes BHP. As they point out, however, today the safety of these procedures is widely known. In fact, a study that was released last year showed that weight loss surgery had a complications rate on par with other commonly performed procedures including gallbladder and knee replacement surgery. What the article and BHP both point out is that, while early tests show the new neurometabolic therapy device to be safe, its efficacy has not been tested and proven on a large scale. For this reason, the article notes, most insurance companies do not presently cover the device.
  • Effectiveness – In addition to being safe, the sleeve gastrectomy has been shown time and time again to successfully help obese patients lose weight and keep it off, says BHP. Not only do patients know this, but insurance companies know this as well, they argue. Since it is much more expensive to provide health care for obese patients in the long term, notes BHP, insurance companies are typically more than willing to cover a sleeve gastrectomy procedure to save money (and lives) down the line.

While Beverly Hills Physicians notes that no surgical procedure is right for every patient, it is best to turn to tried and trusted procedures under the care of top-notch surgeons, rather than venturing into mostly uncharted territory. While the future may show that neurometabolic therapy devices are the way to go, the present reality is that the sleeve gastrectomy is typically the best available choice for obese patients.
