Anti-alcohol implant in Warsaw
an effective and long-lasting solution for people with drinking problem

Anti-alcohol Esperal implant is a method that can help people struggling with alcohol addiction. Esperal implants offered by KacDoktor in Warsaw are performed by a team of qualified surgeons. Thanks to local anesthesia, the procedure is painless and its effects are long-lasting. The producer declares that the effects of Esperal may last up to 12 months.

People struggling with alcohol problem often find it difficult to quit.
Esperal is a substance that blocks the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase, responsible for alcohol metabolism in the liver. This enzyme is responsible for converting ethanol (alcohol) into acetaldehyde - a toxic substance that causes unpleasant symptoms after drinking alcohol. The implant, in the form of tablets, is placed under the patient's skin by a surgeon. Usually it is 1 tablet per 10 kg of body weight. The active substance is released gradually over a period of several months. When a person consumes an alcoholic beverage, the substance contained in the implant causes unpleasant symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, increased sweating or headaches and dizziness. This makes reaching for another drink of alcohol less attractive and discourages you from continuing to drink.

KacDoktor specializes in performing surgical procedures involving subcutaneous implantation of Esperal, commonly known as anti-alcohol implant. So far, we have performed over 5,000 procedures in our clinic, and the experience we have gained guarantees our patients safety and the highest quality of services. We operate in accordance with the highest medical standards to provide our patients with comfort and the best therapeutic effects. Our medical staff takes care of the patient during the entire treatment process, providing professional care and full discretion.

We offer Esperal implantation to patients from Warsaw and the entire Masovian Voivodeship. The procedures are performed in our clinic at ul. Krochmalna 32A.
If you have difficulty controlling your alcohol consumption or would like to help a loved one fight addiction, contact us now and arrange a medical consultation. Our specialists will answer all of your questions about the procedure and present a detailed treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

How is the procedure performed?

Appointments are made by phone at 511 833 844. After arranging the date, the patient receives a confirmation text message. During the appointment in our clinic, we check whether there are any contraindications to the procedure. The anti-alcohol implant is not suitable for everyone. There are several factors that may exclude you from having the procedure, including:

  • Hypersensitivity to the ingredients of the implant;
  • State of alcohol intoxication;
  • Drinking alcohol a day before the procedure;
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding;
  • Heart disease and hypertension;
  • Mental disorders and psychoses;
  • Past suicide attempts.

Once we confirm the lack of contraindications, the doctor begins the procedure. The anti-alcohol implant is placed under the skin, which requires a small incision, usually in the buttock or shoulder blade area. The doctor first cleans and disinfects the treatment site and then applies local anesthesia. After anesthesia, the doctor makes an incision with a scalpel, gently places the tabs in the incision and sutures the wound. The procedure ends with the application of a dressing and the prescription of an antibiotic to prevent infection.

Recommendations after Esperal implantation procedure. After the procedure, it is important to keep the wound clean and follow the doctor's orders. The implant starts working immediately, but in the first days side effects such as drowsiness or nausea may occur. The patient must maintain complete abstinence, avoiding not only alcohol, but also products containing even small amounts of it.

Some patients may be allergic to Esperal. Therefore, it is important to inform the doctor about any allergies before undergoing the procedure.
