Morbidly obese individuals who meet the criteria for and have chosen to undergo Gastric Bypass surgery.
Procedure: Gastric Bypass
Gastric Bypass surgery reduces the size of the stomach by use of staples. The smaller gastric pouch is then connected to the intestine bypassing a portion of the small intestine.
AspireAssist Aspiration Therapy
Morbidly obese individuals who meet the criteria for and have chosen to participate in Aspiration Therapy using the AspireAssist.
Device: AspireAssist Aspiration Therapy
AspireAssist employs an endoscopically placed A-Tube (similar to a gastrostomy tube) and a Companion system which facilitates portion control by aspiration of stomach contents 20 minutes after each meal combined with behavioral Therapy.
