Welcome to Grand Health Partners
GRAND HEALTH PARTNERS IS PROUD TO BE HOME TO THE
INVENTORS OF THE FULL SENSE DEVICE
Congratulations to Dr. Baker, Dr. Foote, and Dr. Kemmeter for their continued success with the invention of the Full Sense Device.
This is an invention that our Grand Health Partners surgeons have developed and been working on for years. The Full Sense Device has gained a lot of media attention after the successful trials recently concluded in Mexico.
Grand Health Partners surgeons have developed a device that will enable obese patients to see weight loss results much like the results from undergoing a bariatric surgery. Obesity has been called an ‘epidemic’ in the United States. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimated that 160 million Americans- nearly half – are overweight as indicated by their body mass index (BMI), which is calculated using height and weight. It is encouraging that there will be other options available for obese patients in the future.
Please note: this device is not currently available. The Full Sense Device may be available outside the United States within the next year. However, we are anticipating that the device would then be available for patient trials in the United States, potentially, within the next two to five years.
