New Weight-Loss Stomach Pump Device Rids Body of Food Before Digestion

    A new weight-loss therapy offers significantly overweight people a means to rid their bodies of some of what they eat before excess calories can be absorbed. Called aspiration therapy, the FDA-approved, nonsurgical therapy was developed by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and is available at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital. Meet one patient who is losing weight with the AspireAssist device. He once weighed over 400 pounds.
