What is a gastric pacemaker?

Various weight loss procedures are being offered by different medical institutions to help you in your quest to lose weight for you to have a healthy body. One of the procedures offered at Davtyan Medical Weight Loss and Wellness is a gastric pacemaker procedure. What is it and what does it do? A gastric pacemaker is a device that controls your appetite through the use of electric impulses. This minimally invasive procedure is done by placing the device laparoscopically in you, without altering your stomach or intestines. As the electric impulses block the signals that tell your brain that you are hungry, you will feel a lot fuller quicker. To know more about this procedure, let Dr. Davtyan help explain this procedure to you. Give them a call or inquire through their website for more information.

Benefits of using a gastric pacemaker

There are a number of effects to your overall well-being that you can experience after undergoing a gastric pacemaker procedure. A gastric pacemaker can help you with your weight loss issues. You can also keep the weight off if you couple the use of a gastric pacemaker with proper diet and regular exercise to keep you in shape. Using a gastric pacemaker can also help reduce other weight related health conditions such as lowering your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. But that’s not all.
