EFFINGHAM, IL -(Effingham Radio)- At HSHS Medical Group Gastroenterology and Weight Management, Nitin Kumar, MD, offers world-class expertise in gastroenterology and weight loss services.
Harvard-trained and board-certified in gastroenterology, internal medicine and obesity medicine, Dr. Kumar can help you optimize your digestive health by treating a full spectrum of gastrointestinal conditions.
In addition, Dr. Kumar offers ORBERA® weight loss system and SculpSure® body contouring, both approved by the FDA.
“I’m excited to combine my passion for gastroenterology and weight management to serve patients,” said Dr. Kumar.
“My practice is dedicated to making patients feel good on the inside and out. ORBERA and SculpSure are two proven effective fat reduction options for those who want to feel more comfortable in their own skin.”
Common gastroenterology services provided by Dr. Kumar include: acid reflux, Crohn’s disease, constipation, diarrhea, gallbladder disease, gallstones, GERD, heartburn, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, as well as other gastrointestinal conditions.
Two FDA approved non-surgical fat reduction procedures Dr. Kumar provides, includes ORBERA and SculpSure. ORBERA is a reversible, non-surgical weight loss procedure, which means no incisions, stitches or scars.
It takes only 20-30 minutes, with most patients going home the same day. ORBERA is a soft balloon that is placed temporarily in your stomach to encourage portion control.
After 6 months, the balloon is removed through a quick non-surgical procedure. After the balloon is removed, Dr. Kumar and his team will continue to coach you toward keeping the weight off long-term.
FDA cleared and clinically tested on over 100 patients, SculpSure is a safe and effective light-based treatment that precisely targets fat cells under the skin, permanently destroying up to 24%1 of treated fat in a 25 minute procedure.
Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
Since there is no recovery time with SculpSure, patients can return to normal activities immediately. SculpSure is also comfortable with most patients feeling nothing more than a warming sensation.
Dr. Kumar is board-certified in obesity medicine, gastroenterology and internal medicine.
He has been quoted as an expert in national press, including Prevention, Shape, Self, and Reader’s Digest.
