Stomach Capsule

The stomach capsule is considered the latest non-surgical weight loss method in medicine. It is called the smart or programmed capsule, as it dissolves inside the body after a certain period. It aims to lose excess weight by reducing the amount of food an individual consumes, helping to feel full quickly, thereby eating less food and consequently achieving faster weight loss.

What is the smart stomach capsule? What are the conditions for undergoing it? What are the advantages of this type of weight loss method? What are the instructions that must be followed before and after? This is what we will learn about below with Dr. Ahmed Al-Nabi

The Programmed Stomach Capsule:

The smart stomach capsule is a silicone balloon ingested orally at Ahmed Al-Nabeel Clinics – Elite Care. After ensuring its proper placement inside the stomach through X-ray, it is filled with a saline solution. This balloon occupies a significant space in the stomach, causing the patient with severe obesity to feel full faster, thereby leading to weight loss.

Many people resort to the smart stomach capsule for weight loss due to its numerous benefits, primarily to eliminate the risks of severe obesity, such as:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Heart diseases
  3. Diabetes
  4. High cholesterol
  5. Breathing problems, especially during sleep

The Cost of the Programmed Stomach Capsule:

The cost of the stomach capsule depends on several factors, including:

  1. The experience of the treating physician
