Healthcare Professionals
  • Less Pain*

    Magnetic Surgery® patients experience less pain than traditional bariatric surgery patients.1

  • Faster Recovery*

    Bariatric surgery patients spend less time in the hospital and return to work within 5 days of surgery on average.1-2

  • Better Cosmetic Results

    Look better after surgery with fewer incisions and fewer scars.

  • High Patient Satisfaction

    96% patient satisfaction. In a 50 patient study, 48 said they would have the Magnetic Surgery procedure again.2

*Based on retrospective, single-center study of 296 patients comparing magnetic liver retraction vs. a conventional liver retractor in bariatric surgery. Patients in the magnetic surgery cohort had significantly decreased 12-hour post-operative pain scores and hospital length of stay.
