The NANOBLOCK Procedure is a minimally invasive, image-guided bariatric embolization procedure that was developed by interventional radiologists. Our physician’s completed the very first procedure in the USA! They have also completed the first procedure through the radial artery. The procedure is done by introducing a small catheter into the wrist or groin, using X-ray imaging to guide the catheter to the stomach where small bead particles are injected. These small beads suppress the production of the hunger hormone.
Only a small puncture in the wrist or groin area is needed, no stomach staples, no bypass, no bands, no invasive surgery!
Physicians routinely use these same small particles on the stomach in other applications for over 20 years.
The NANOBLOCK Procedure patients return home the same day and the procedure is conducted at an outpatient facility.
