Lemon juice and hot sauce to taste

Bored-walk?

Bored-walk?

Walks can be pleasant, peaceful, memorable, and inspiring. But reaching one’s target heart rate can be very challenging on most flat terrain without moving at an extremely difficult pace. The next time you’re out for a leisurely stroll, and you’d like to burn some extra calories, try a little bit of the following:

As always, you must have clearance from your doctor (not me!) prior to attempting any of these exercises.

Before embarking on your “Rambo Walk,” please warmup appropriately (refer to earlier blog entry on warmup routines)…

Balloon Technology is Here!

Balloon Technology is Here!

Many of you have asked about the stomach balloon technology that has been all a-buzz in the media lately. I have recently begun collecting names of patients that are interested in these advanced devices. I perform the procedures under conscious sedation (no general anesthetic), through the mouth (no incisions, no scars). Using an endoscope, I insert a shaped balloon into the stomach, and inflate it to a certain amount that reduces hunger, and increases fullness.

The balloons are temporary, and must be removed 6 months after insertion, also with an endoscope, and also under sedation, without general anesthetic. Patients go home the same day in both cases, and have been shown to achieve as much as 40% excess weight loss in some studies…

Bariatric Coverage for All Who Qualify!

I’m so fortunate to have been invited to participate in the Access to Care meeting for State Chapters of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Our group is hard at work to improve access to bariatric benefits for folks without insurance coverage for weight loss therapies . I will keep you all posted, and I really appreciate your support as I help represent this region of the United States!

Dr. Metz Invited to Present Loop Duodenal Switch Data at International Meeting

Dr. Metz Invited to Present Loop Duodenal Switch Data at International Meeting

I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to present our initial data on the Loop Duodenal Switch, or SIPS procedure, last week. While it was truly inspirational to meet face to face with other pioneers in the Surgical Community, my favorite comment came from the national study coordinator, who said, “You’re Dr. Metz? I thought you’d be older!”

Congratulations to our super-motivated and dedicated patients, colleagues, and support staff for this tremendous undertaking. I will keep you all posted as we move into final phases of the study…
