Have you been struggling with weight loss and it's becoming a major medical issue in your life?
There have been surgeries around for years that can help with it, and this new on available to women who want to lose 25 to 70 pound aims to be the 'hottest.'
Here's what the founder of Surgical Specialists said:
“POSE is for patients who want to lose 25-50, maybe 60 or 70 pounds. It’s a much different group of people than we normally approach for bariatric surgery.”
It's a procedure that's done completely using an endoscope. That means no incisions, though it works like the classic bypass operation — it makes the stomach about 30% smaller.
The problem is, though, endoscopic procedures for weight loss have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration… or anyone else official for that matter.
The cash payout for the doctors is worth the risk, somehow. We're not really sure why people are allowed to perform ANYTHING that hasn't been formally approved!
Seems super dangerous not to have regulations!
We say stick to diet and exercise — it's a proven method!
