Gastric Artery Embolization / Weight Loss

Finally, A Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure.

We know what a struggle losing weight is.  Millions of Americans struggle every day, desperate to lose weight. They try fad diets, pills, and starvation to get results. These solutions usually sound too good to be true…because they are. On the other hand, a non-surgical weight loss procedure like the Gastric Artery Embolization is safe and effective.

Get Control of Your Appetite.

Gastric Artery Embolization arose from the 1999 discovery of an appetite-stimulating hormone called ghrelin that is created in the stomach. Rising levels of ghrelin are one reason that people have trouble sticking with a diet.  The left gastric artery supplies a part of the stomach called the fundus, which produces the hormone ghrelin. And ghrelin’s main job is to stimulate hunger.

 

In order to suppress production of ghrelin, interventional radiologists embolize the gastric artery, the main artery that supplies blood to the stomach.

Treatment

Gastric Artery Embolization is performed by injecting microscopic beads into the bloodstream. The beads make their way to the artery, where they block the smaller vessels. This is all accomplished through a minimally invasive non-surgical technique through a small catheter inserted in the wrist or groin.
