At Hughes Medical Centre, we also offer Endoscopic insertion and removal of Intra-Gastric Balloons. The Intra gastric balloon is a non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical aid in the treatment of obesity. It works by making you feel full after eating only a little and reduces your stomach’s capacity to hold food. Patients are less hungry, eat more reasonable portions and therefore lose weight - on average between 15 to 30kg and weight loss can even reach up to 80kg. The placement of the intra-gastric balloon takes about 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia by Dr. Remy Romney, a visiting gastroenterologist from Guadeloupe
We are located in Lower South Hill area, immediately before the Cuisinart Hotel.
