Professor Nadey Hakim

A world renowned General, Transplant and Bariatric Surgeon is now practicing at Harley Street Medical Centre and has performed his first two procedureless gastric balloon procedures.

We asked Professor Hakim why he chose “Allurion” as a weight management tool and he said ““I have performed over 3500 intragastric balloons over the last 13 years. The new Allurion Elipse balloon which does not require endoscopy, anaesthetic or sedation is certainly a very attractive option for patients who are not keen to have any instrument inserted into their mouth. The magic self deflation and disappearance of the balloon is a big plus as a weight management tool”.
