Dr. Trace Curry performed surgery and placed the first five RealizeTM Adjustable Gastric Bands in the state of Ohio on Tuesday, November 13, 2007. All five patients are reported as doing well. Dr. Curry was the first surgeon in the state of Ohio to place the new Realize Band in patients as an alternative to the Lap Band for the surgical treatment of the disease of obesity.
"With the emergence of the new Realize Band into the marketplace, individuals seeking treatment for obesity now have greater choices when considering their options for laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. The Realize band, like the Lap Band, continues to be the safest, least invasive surgical treatment for obesity," stated Dr. Curry. In late September, the Food and Drug Administration approved the Ethicon Endo-Surgery Realize Band, introducing competition towards Allergan's dominance in the adjustable gastric banding market.
