Moore Metabolics Patient, Vanessa Lawson, on NBC Nightly News

Vanessa Lawson, Dr. Moore’s first ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon patient, was featured on the NBC Nightly News. The segment by NBC covered three weight loss balloons including the Elipse Gastric Balloon™ which is not yet approved by the FDA for use in the U.S., the ReShape Gastric Balloon and the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon.

In the news segment, Vanessa spoke about her successful weight loss with the ORBERA™ gastric balloon. Watch the video below to see a day in Vanessa’s new life as she takes us grocery shopping, cooks a healthy meal, and exercises on her stationary bike.

Dr. Moore offers the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon as a non-surgical, minimally invasive option for patients who need to lose 20 to 40 pounds. This safe and effective procedure involves an endoscopic insertion under light sedation, and it is part of a twelve month weight loss program that promotes a healthy lifestyle in conjunction with dietary and activity changes.

Dr. Rachel Moore is committed to helping each patient find the best weight loss solution to achieve their goals. Dr. Moore and the team at Moore Metabolics will continue to seek out and study the newest technologies in weight loss treatment in order to best serve patients in the New Orleans area.
