vBloc® Neurometabolic Therapy

vBloc® Neurometabolic Therapy

At Wisconsin Bariatrics, SC, we understand that obesity has a devastating effect on your self-esteem, relationships, and overall health. Even after a healthy diet and lifestyle, maintaining your weight loss can be even more of an enduring challenge. That is why we are pleased to introduce a new and innovative alternative to weight loss surgery called vBloc® Neurometabolic Therapy.

What is vBloc® Therapy?

VBloc® Therapy (vagal blocking therapy) offers an entirely new approach to the treatment of obesity. By blocking signals along the nerves that connect the brain and stomach, vBloc® reduces feelings of hunger and promotes earlier feelings of fullness, which can help people with obesity reduce the number of calories consumed and promote safe, healthy and stable weight loss.

The Maestro® System

The Maestro® System

The Maestro® System is a pacemaker-like device that is implanted, usually in an outpatient procedure, to control both hunger and fullness by intermittently blocking the primary nerve, which regulates the digestive system, the vagus nerve. VBloc® Therapy does not surgically alter or restrict the digestive system; it does not create barriers to prevent absorption of nutrients and is completely reversible. Because the therapy directly targets your source of hunger, patients do not have to avoid food groups or certain types of foods. This allows patients to lose weight without lifestyle compromises.

Who is it for?

VBloc® Neurometabolic Therapy, delivered via the Maestro® System, is for the treatment of adult patients with obesity who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 to 45 kg/m2, or a BMI of at least 35 to 39.9 kg/m2 with a related health condition such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels, and who have tried to lose weight in a supervised weight management program within the past five years.

vBloc® Therapy is not for use in patients with cirrhosis of the liver, portal hypertension, esophageal varices or an uncorrectable, clinically significant hiatal hernia; patients for whom magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or diathermy use is planned; patients at high risk for surgical complications; and patients who have a permanently implanted, electrical-powered medical device or gastrointestinal device or prosthesis (e.g. pacemakers, implanted defibrillators, neurostimulators).

Hope Is Within Reach.

Obesity is a global epidemic with far-reaching cost and consequences to both public and personal health. From diet and exercise to bypass surgery, without the proper maintenance and care, some existing treatment options can fail to stop the advancement of this disease. The Maestro® System with vBloc® Neurometabolic Therapy add a safe and effective new weapon to our practice, offering the patient a treatment option that does not physically restrict or alter the anatomy, and is reversible.
