STANFORD OFFERING NEW WEIGHT LOSS OPTION USING BALLOONS
STANFORD, Calif. (KGO) — For many people who are seriously overweight, the challenge of dropping pounds is often difficult and urgent. But now, a new technology available at Stanford Hospital is offering hope.
Stacy Myers says her weight shot up after a back injury several years ago. “My highest weight was 221 pounds, and I was miserable,” she remembers.
At over 200 pounds, Stacy turned to Dr. John Morton and a new technology. It’s an alternative to gastric bypass surgery that alters the stomach not with a scalpel, but with balloons.
