Dr. Shantanu Gaur, co-founder and CEO Allurion, said Allurion’s mission is to act as a catalyst to end obesity and the resulting effects from the disease, including diabetes. “Obesity and Type 2 diabetes are pandemics of unprecedented magnitude, and they often afflict patients simultaneously,” Gaur said. “Current treatments for obesity and diabetes either suffer from poor safety and efficacy or a poor patient experience. The Allurion Program offers a compelling alternative for the treatment of both of these conditions.”
