An added bonus of ReShape™ here in the office of Dr. Samuel N. Marcus is that you will have the opportunity to work with Jodi Bjurman, RD, who is a leader in her field, has vast experience in working with patients prior to, during and after they have undergone various types of weight loss programs and surgeries and who will play a vital part in ensuring the success of the ReShape™ program. During the twelve months of the your ReShape™ program, you’ll work closely with Jodi as your personal lifestyle modification coach. With her, you’ll learn more about shifting your mental and emotional paradigm surrounding food, as well as how to maintain healthy eating and exercise habits that will continue to be part of your daily routine for the rest of your life.
A Safe Alternative to Drastic Surgical Weight Loss Measures
The ReShape™ gastric balloon is the next generation gastric balloon design. Dr Marcus who has literally performed well over 10,000 endoscopies of the stomach and the team at ReShape™ have worked diligently together and as a result., they are pleased to announce that he is the first gastroenterologist in the San Francisco Bay Area to offer the ReShape™ Integrated Dual Gastric Balloon” at the Mountain View Endoscopy Center, which is one of just a few endoscopy centers in California that has the capability of offering the revolutionary ReShape™ procedure.
The ReShape™ procedure, uses endoscopy to place a uniquely designed, dual-gastric balloon into the stomach. The balloons are then filled with a saline solution until your stomach is about 75% full. This system “tricks” the stomach into thinking you’re closer to “full” than you really are. As a result, you feel hungry less often and will be content to consume smaller portions with each meal.
After six months, you return to have the balloons removed by Dr. Marcus, at which point – you will have developed entirely new eating habits and portion control when you follow the provided, recommended diet.
Finally! A Non-Surgical Healthy Weight Loss Procedure That Gets Long-Term Results
When the ReShape™ procedure is combined with a healthy, well-rounded diet and regular moderate exercise, clinical trials show that patients:
- Experience 2.3 times more excess weight loss (EWL) at six months.
- Patients lose up to 72 pounds in 12 months.
- 2/3 of the weight loss obtained during the balloon phase is maintained after six months.
- 25% of patients continue to lose weight after six months.
- 55% of patients treated with the ReShape™ Procedure lose 25% of their excess weight.
