Open Wide, It's Time to Lose Weight!
Date:1/5/2009

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentinel Group announced the first implants of the Full Sense(TM) Device on November 3-4, 2008 at Galenia Hospital in Cancun, Mexico by American doctors Randal Baker MD, James Foote MD and Mexican doctor Jorge Trevino MD.

The Full Sense Device is a stent like device placed through the mouth into the top of the stomach to cause a feeling of fullness. It causes fullness by placing pressure on the bottom of the esophagus and the top of the stomach. The device can be placed and removed via endoscopy. "The Full Sense Device essentially tricks the brain into thinking that the stomach is full when it is not," said Fred Walburn, PhD., President of Sentinel Group. "This technology represents potentially the greatest step forward in the battle against obesity since the inception of bariatric surgery."

"Most of today's bariatric surgeries require some type of pouch filled with food to create a full feeling," stated Randal Baker MD. "This device, so far, is showing better weight loss than most surgeries because it does not depend on food intake." Dr. Foote adds, "We believe this technology will be another great tool in the fight against obesity."

"Galenia Hospital is pleased to be the first center to treat patients with the Full Sense Device," said Dr. Trevino, Head of Bariatric Surgery. "The patients are losing weight better than most of my surgery patients and are extremely happy."
