Board-Certified Bariatric Surgeon, Trace Curry, MD Places First Next-Generation Ethicon Endo-Surgery REALIZE™ Adjustable Gastric Band-C in Ohio

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) December 15, 2008 -- Dr. Trace Curry was the first surgeon in Ohio to surgically place the first three REALIZE™ Adjustable Gastric Band-Cs on Monday, November 24, 2008. All three patients are reported as doing well. Dr. Curry was the first surgeon in the Midwest to place the new REALIZE Adjustable Gastric Band-Cs as a new treatment for the disease of morbid obesity.

"The new next-generation REALIZE Band-C gives patients yet another option in the field of gastric banding for the treatment of excess weight. This new band builds on the core design principles of the original REALIZE Band, and has many enhancements, which may make it more appealing to both surgeon and patient," stated Curry. Dr. Curry was one of the few U.S. surgeons to attend international training sessions to gain early experience with this new technology prior to its release in the U.S.

In late October, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the new Ethicon Endo-Surgery REALIZE Band.

"The first three cases went very smoothly," said Dr. Curry, head of The Center for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery in Cincinnati, and medical director of JourneyLite of Cincinnati. "This new device really takes the quality of the REALIZE Band to the next level. Each operation took less than 30 minutes, and all patients were able to go home after about an hour in recovery. I predict these patients will do very well and see their health improve dramatically as the weight comes off."
