Obesity and overweight are the diseases which demand treatment in all medical aspects. HM Hospitales’ team involves highly qualified specialists who support patients during the whole period of treatment (in some cases up to 2 years).

The patients receive:

  • psychological support;
  • counselling on physical exertion;
  • the team of nutrition specialists and endocrinologists who develop healthy eating habits.

Department of Endoscopic Surgery in HM Hospitales

The Department of Bariatric Endoscopy is headed by Dr. Gontrand Lopez-Nava:

  • Head of the Division of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy in НМ Hospital Universitario Sanchinarro;
  • Chief Physician of Endoscopy Division in Sant Rafael Hospital (Madrid);
  • Professor of Medicine at University of San Pablo CEU Madrid
  • Expert of The Madrid Association of English-Speaking Therapists.

Techniques used in the Clinic:

Intragastric balloon

This is an effective procedure which doesn’t require surgical invasion. The balloon is inserted endoscopically through the mouth without irritating the lining and creating scars.

It is filled with saline solution and is fixed in the stomach. It promotes consuming less food and accelerates the feeling of fullness. This is the simplest way of losing weight.

Gastric balloon is completely safe and doesn’t demand the lasting hospitalization. A patient can return home the same day.

Dr. Lopez-Nava is one of the leading world experts in this procedure. He has inserted above 3,500 intragastric balloons.

Endoscopic stomach reduction: Apollo and POSE methods

This type of stomach reduction is carried out through the patient’s mouth that is safer than the surgical intervention. The Apollo endoscopic revision results in the decrease of the stomach volume creating a sense of fullness.

The main advantage of the intra-oral manipulation is that patients may return to their everyday life in 24 hours after the procedure. Apollo and POSE methods don’t leave scars and are less risky comparing to other radical therapies.

Swallowing balloon capsule

This method contributes to the diet efficiency and will be suitable for people with overweight of 10 kg.

A patient swallows a balloon which increases in size after reaching the stomach. The procedure doesn’t need endoscopy (only for the extraction). Comparing to the traditional intragastric balloon this one is smaller and needs twice less time to be inside. All these things make the treatment easier.
