The AspireAssist is a new form of treatment for obesity. The treatment works by giving the patient the ability to empty about 30% of his or her stomach safely and easily after meals. A tube (PEG) is installed by gastroscopy and under sedation from the patient’s stomach to her abdomen with a port attached on the outside of the abdomen. A pump can be used after every meal to remove a large portion of the meal before the calories are absorbed, leading to significant weight loss. Patients will require a new kit every year in order to be able to continue to use the AspireAssist.
