EnteroMedics Announces First Veterans Choice Program vBloc® Implant for Obesity at Methodist Dallas Medical Center

, EnteroMedics' President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board. "This first VA Choice implant represents another successful step for EnteroMedics towards our goal of establishing vBloc Therapy as a standard of care for patients seeking anatomy-friendly options for weight loss."

vBloc Therapy works to control sensations of hunger using a pacemaker-like device that is implanted under the skin during a safe, minimally invasive procedure. The vBloc System gives the patient a sensation of fullness, empowering them to eat less, control their appetite, and lose weight. Studies have shown that vBloc Therapy produces meaningful weight loss while also reducing comorbidity factors related to obesity. 

"It is an honor to help our veterans and their families who have served this country," said Dr. Kukreja. "With a minimally-invasive, non-anatomy-altering solution to help fight obesity, vBloc Therapy offers patients a healthier alternative to other surgical weight loss solutions."
