Weight loss is complicated. You know that better than anyone. Finding a way to lose weight has been a lifelong search for some people. Diet and exercise can work to an extent, but definitely not for everyone. Studies have shown that the chances of a person losing a substantial amount of weight from diet and exercise alone, is very small.

If, on the other hand, you are frustrated with the yoyo-cycle, one option to consider is the weight loss balloon. The balloon is a non-surgical weight loss device that stays in the stomach for 6 months. Generally the balloon is an option for adults with a BMI between 30 – 40.

The majority of the procedures Dr. Kurian performs are bariatric surgeries. These include gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap band, and biliopancreatic diversion.
