Allurion Balloon Placements in Liverpool
The Allurion Balloon is a swallowable gastric balloon designed to stay in the patients stomach for around 16 weeks, at which it will deflate and ‘pass naturally’. Around half of patients don’t notice the balloon passing. Average weight loss expectations are between 10 and 15% with the Allurion Balloon. This is achieved by the gastric balloon occupying 60% of the stomach, suppressing the production of ghrelin, and delaying the process gastric emptying, all convening to leave the patient feeling fuller for longer. Along with making the necessary lifestyle changes, including working with our HCPC registered dietitian, an Allure Patient is able to effectively tackle obesity with this temporary tool.
Our Allurion Balloon Consultant, Dr Ash Bassi, is also the clinical director for gastroenterology at St Helens & Knowsley NHS Hospitals Trust where he was appointed as a Consultant in 2005. He is a member of the British Society of Gastroenterology, American Society of Gastroenterology and American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Dr Bassi is an accredited trainer for endoscopy and a honorary senior lecturer at Liverpool University.
