A smart incisionless solution that can control hunger, sustain weight loss, and increase satisfaction for your patients and your practice.HOW THE POSE PROCEDURE WORKS
There is now a
to help patients lose weight and keep it off without feeling hungry.
The Pose procedure is a safe and effective outpatient technique that allows you to offer sustained weight loss, develop satisfied patients and expand your practice. It’s a single procedure that can be done in approximately 45 minutes, results in substantially fewer after-hours calls than temporary endoscopic procedures, and has a best-in-class safety profile.
Endoscopic instruments are used to plicate the stomach to create rows of folds secured by Snowshoe® suture anchors in the upper and lower part of the stomach.
The folds in the fundus reduce the size of the stomach and hunger cravings, helping patients eat less and feel satisfied sooner. The distal folds slow gastric emptying to help prolong the sensation of fullness.
According to a study published in The Lancet, 2.1 billion people—nearly a third of the world’s adult population—are either obese or overweight.1
This procedure allows you to treat an underserved population of lower BMI patients with a durable, longer-term endoluminal procedure.
The procedure is the only incisionless, longer-term, hunger control procedure for sustained weight loss through permanent tissue remodeling of the portion of the stomach that triggers satiety.
The Pose procedure is a safe minimally invasive obesity procedure with one of the lowest serious adverse event (SAE) rates of any endolumenal obesity study. There were no device removals and no device failures.2
Durable Snowshoe suture anchors permanently remodel the stomach tissue and stay securely in place, supporting sustained weight loss through two years after the procedure was performed.3
Adding Pose to Your Practice
"The Pose procedure seems to offer more permanence than the other procedures that have been done endoscopically to this point. The anchors have been around since 2008 and thousands of anchors have been placed. Many follow up endoscopies have shown these anchors stay around and cause the plications to stay in place for years afterwards."
** In the United States, USGI Medical’s devices have been cleared by the FDA for approximation of soft tissue in minimally invasive gastroenterology procedures. The use of USGI’s devices to treat obesity (including the POSE procedure) is currently under FDA Investigation. USGI Medical also has a CE Mark Indication for the use of its devices to treat obesity in those patients with a BMI of 30-40.
