Hi,

I'm a recent Stanford graduate researching acid reflux and would like your input. I've created a medical device that works well for GERD and has a potential side effect of causing a person to lose ~20% of their excess weight (which also should improve GERD). Is this a device that people would be interested in? There are similar devices out there (NDO Plicator, Endocinch, etc.) that are alternatives to anti-reflux surgery, but none of them cause weight loss. I'd be happy to share more but wanted to see if this would be an interesting alternative to current medical therapies.
 
Thank you!

Hi Halls,
Thank you for your interest. You can click on the e-mail envelope under my username to e-mail me and I can give you more information. I'm a researcher so please remember this is an experimental device that is many years away from the market. My hope is to get feedback from you and the rest of the community here to see if the idea is worth pursuing and how I can improve the technology.
