Very interesting meeting at the Royal College of Physicians today. The new Adhesix Bioring brought a lot of interest to the Elemental Healthcare stand along with the Endobarrier. A great meeting and lots of exciting contacts made.
The National Obesity Surgery Centre has been treating patients with the Endobarrier, a new device for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes and obesity which is distributed by Elemental Healthcare Ltd
So far, so good. All Endobarrier patients losing weight, (some over a stone in two weeks!) and all significantly reduced Diabetes medication.
Following the completion of the Endobarrier UK trials in most of the participating hospitals, the procedure is now available privately in both Southampton and Manchester. The first 12 private cases are scheduled in May and will benefit patients who have Type 2 Diabetes and who are overweight.
