The AspireAssist

The AspireAssist Explained

The AspireAssist is a device that safely extracts food from your stomach after you’ve eaten. The device is attached to your stomach that can pump out 30% of the foods you eat into the toilet. It takes about 5-10 minutes and helps reinforce healthy eating habits by requiring people to chew their food more thoroughly, so they’ll be able to digest it better.

Who is it For?

The AspireAssist is a medical device that helps obese adults lose weight without having to diet or exercise. It can be used by people who have tried and failed with diets, as well as for those whose BMI ranges from 35-55.

How The Procedure Works

Our gastroenterologist places a small tube through your belly and into the stomach. This procedure only takes about 30-45 minutes, is performed under “twilight anesthesia” so you’ll go home within a couple of hours, and can be removed at any time in an outpatient same day procedures if necessary. We place this device to help remove up to 30% of food from your stomach before it’s absorbed by the body – which helps people lose weight without restricting their diet or lifestyle too much!

How Much Weight Will I Lose?

Patients who use the AspireAssist and partner with their physician, lose 3x more weight in comparison to patients only utilizing diet and exercise counseling. The most successful patients – those that utilize the device on a regular basis; additionally making gradual lifestyle changes – can expect up to 107 pounds lost within one year. Our partnership will continue for 12 months following this initial success by providing comprehensive dietary guidance, as well as long-term behavioral support so they are able to maintain these results indefinitely!
