Auralia Weight Loss Clinic Only Uses the Allergan Gastric Band

by David Keogh, October 30th, 2013

Here at Auralia Weight Loss Clinic we are committed to providing patients with the most reliable, safest products available worldwide. Keeping in line with this commitment, the only gastric band that we use is the Allergan gastric band.

This particular device is the most advanced gastric band worldwide and is the first and only gastric band device to receive full Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for patients with a BMI above 30 as a result of more than 12 years of research in collaboration with leading surgeons throughout the world which has proven it to be the safest and most reliable gastric band available throughout the world by quite a significant margin. This FDA approval was originally granted in 2001 and has since been updated again in 2011, allowing patients with a lower BMI to become eligible for gastric band surgery due to the increased safety of the patient when using the Allergan gastric band.

Over the past 18 years, more than 700,000 Allergan gastric bands have been placed worldwide which has resulted in more than 2,000,000 patient years of exposure. Thanks to this outstanding figure, the Allergan gastric band has been the focus of more than 5000 published research papers. As a result of this, the Allergan gastric band is now the most researched medical device for weight loss worldwide.

The Allergan gastric band also boasts the highest fill volume available (0-14ml) compared to every other device on the market which allows for more accurate individual adjustments along with greater flexibility for our patients.

Taking all of the above into account, you can rest assured that when choosing Auralia Weight Loss Clinic as your gastric band program provider you will be receiving not only the highest levels of after-care but also the safest and most reliable gastric band available throughout the world!

Meet Dave
Dave Blog Picture Hi guys my name is Dave and I am the weight loss surgery co-ordinator for Auralia Weight loss Clinic. To give you a brief
introduction to myself, I am an extremely enthusiastic individual and I love to challenge myself to achieve higher targets. I personally know what it is like to lose weight having lost almost 5 stone in one year following a diet and exercise plan which I developed myself. Since then, I have developed an enormous interest in weight loss and I get great satisfaction knowing that I am helping other people achieve their target weights. I love playing sports and I have coaching qualifications in many various activities including rugby and Olympic weight lifting. I have also represented Ireland on a number of occasions in tenpin bowling. The aim of this blog is to give an insight as to what weight loss surgery is actually like, whether that is the gastric band or the gastric balloon. Every week or so I will post a new blog.
