According to the State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America, in 2014 Arizona had the 29th highest obesity rate in the nation. Board certified gastroenterologists Dr. Swarnjit Singh and Dr. Brendan Levy are on a mission to help Arizona’s growing obesity population by changing adult relationships with food. Their new weight loss facility, the Gastrotrim Center located at 600 S. Dobson Rd in Chandler, AZ is introducing a new 12-month comprehensive weight loss program utilizing the ReShape® Integrated Dual Intragastric Balloon.
The FDA approved dual weight loss balloon system is a minimally invasive procedure that makes shedding pounds more effective by occupying space in the stomach, giving the client a feeling of fullness. The balloon is a temporary device that does not alter the anatomy and can be quickly removed after six months. This gives qualifying patients an alternative to surgical weight loss procedures.
Certified nutritionist Nicole Anderson-Goodrich with Anderson’s Nutrition and psychologist Gloria Gilbert of Psychological Counseling Services will work closely with each patient to customize diet plans and assist with lifestyle modifications.
Dr. Swarnjit Singh explains, “We would like to introduce patients to an effective comprehensive weight loss treatment that will assist them with developing healthy eating behaviors. We will help patients understand what they eat and why they eat the way that they do. We provide customized probiotics, nutritional supplements, and lipotropic/b complex injections as tools for success. The program will ultimately change their relationship with food long term. The dual intragastric balloon is a safe endoscopic procedure that offers support with portion control. Patients then stay motivated with the continued dietary support from the program administrators.”
The Gastrotrim Center is the leader in weight loss technology in Arizona. This weight loss program targets patients who have tried other weight loss methods in the past however, still continue to evolve in their obesity.
