RX2: Shantanu Gaur, MD, Founder, Allurion Technologies
Medicine is hard, but there probably isn’t anything harder to solve in medicine than the obesity epidemic. The CDC considers 42% of Americans obese. That fact didn’t scare off John's guest this week. His name is Shantanu Gaur, the co-founder of Allurion Technologies, a leader in the development of innovative, scalable and weight loss solutions. Shantanu describes his journey from Harvard medical school to starting Allurion and how they built the Elipse Balloon, the world’s first and only procedureless gastric balloon for weight loss.
