Pure Body Transformation First in Colorado to Offer ReShape® Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure

New dual balloon technology proven twice as effective at
weight loss compared to diet and exercise alone

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ReShapeprocedurePure
Body Transformation
is the first in Colorado to offer the ReShape®
Integrated Dual Balloon System, an FDA-approved, non-surgical,
endoscopic weight loss procedure
for people with mild to moderate
obesity. The outpatient ReShape procedure provides a new option
for adults with a BMI of 30-40 and a related health condition who
haven’t succeeded at diet and exercise alone and do not want – or do not
qualify for – bariatric surgery.

“For years a significant gap has existed in treatment options for
obesity with limited, effective therapies available,” said Matthew Metz,
M.D., F.A.C.S., medical director and founder of Pure Body
Transformation. “We often see patients who are clinically obese and in
desperate need of medical intervention to help them lose weight, when
diet and exercise alone have failed and surgery is not an option. ReShape
provides this group of in-between patients with access to a
non-surgical, reversible option to encourage new habits and lasting
results.”

The ReShape Dual Balloon is inserted endoscopically into the
stomach during a short outpatient procedure, where it remains for six
months, serving as built-in portion control so people may feel full and
less hungry. It does not change or alter the natural anatomy of the
stomach in any way. During this time and for the six months after
removal, patients receive frequent in-office diet and exercise coaching
sessions and access to the ReShape Patient Portal, an online
support resource that provides tools and information to help patients
track weight loss, diet and exercise, and an on-line community where
they can interact with each other.

“We understand that support after the procedure along with proper diet
and exercise are critical to helping out patients maintain a healthy
weight loss,” said Metz.

More than 78 million adults in the U.S. are obese. In June 2013, the
American Medical Association officially classified obesity as a disease.
Clinically defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 30,
obesity can lead to numerous, serious health complications including
heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.

In an FDA clinical study of 326 patients conducted at eight sites in the
U.S., patients with ReShape experienced 2.3 times more excess
weight loss at six months compared to those who had the diet and
exercise program alone. In the clinical trial, patients lost up to 72
pounds in 12 months.
