Dr. Matt Metz was named the first surgeon in the State of Colorado to use the Reshape Dual Balloon!

Dr. Matt Metz was named the first surgeon in the State of Colorado to use the Reshape Dual Balloon! A non-surgical weight loss procedure, Dr. Metz has already begun implanting the balloons. The intra-gastric balloon is a same-day procedure, and is inserted via an endoscope, under sedation, without any incisions.

All patients receive personalized screening and evaluation, then a full year of personal support and coaching, following the procedure…

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…

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

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…

Dr. Metz in the News for the Lap Duodenal Switch

We began performing the Duodenal Switch in 2013 for the surgical treatment of resistant type 2 diabetes mellitus. Since then, patients have been coming from all over the U.S. to have the procedure, not just to manage their diabetes, but because of the outstanding long-term weight loss associated with the DS.

Yesterday, June 17th, 2014, Fox 31 came to Rose Medical Center to film one of our surgeries…
