What is the ForePass endoscopic device for weight loss?

For various reasons, losing weight is a good idea for patients with higher body mass index (BMI). Certain conditions, including metabolic disease and conditions such as diabetes, are often reduced or eliminated by losing weight and achieving a healthier weight for one’s body frame. 

ForePass Endoscopic Device in Brooklyn NY Area

Dr. Alexander Shapsis and his team at EndoSlim Clinic NY of Atlantic Gastroenterology in Brooklyn, New York, believe in providing solutions that fit patients’ needs, which one day may include incision-less weight loss with the ForePass endoscopic device.

Understanding ForePass as a novel treatment for obesity

Dr. Alexander Shapsis describes the ForePass endoscopic device as a  future innovative solution to helping patients lose weight. This device includes a balloon and intestinal sleeve placed in the stomach and intestine during a digestive endoscopy, offering a less invasive and more affordable treatment compared to metabolic surgeries used for weight loss. The ForePass device allows patients to reverse the procedure, removing it when they have reached their weight loss goals and have maintained their weight at a healthy level for a specific period.

What sets the ForePass device apart from other weight loss solutions?

The ForePass device stands out in the field of weight loss as it is the first and only device that can be used to treat severe metabolic diseases and can be a reversible, non-surgical option for men and women. It is also an affordable solution for those looking to see significant weight loss outside of changes in diet and exercise alone.

Who is a good candidate for the ForePass treatment?

During a consultation appointment with our Board-certified gastroenterologist, Dr. Alexander Shapsis, patients can ask questions about this treatment to determine if they are good candidates. A full evaluation and a discussion of one’s health, medical history, and family history will be done to decide if a patient can move forward with this or other weight loss solutions available at EndoSlim Clinic NY of Atlantic Gastroenterology.
