Gastric Balloon

Introducing the ORBERA™ Gastric Balloon

Find out if this new non-surgical weight loss procedure is right for you.

If you have tried and failed to lose weight through diet, exercise or other conservative methods, the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon may be your key to successful weight loss. This soft silicone balloon is designed to help obese patients (with a Body Mass Index of 30 to 40) in losing and maintaining weight. The balloon is inserted into the stomach using a non-surgical weight loss procedure, then filled with salt water (saline). This takes up space in the stomach, which helps you to eat smaller portions of food.

The balloon is part of the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System – a comprehensive program that has been proven effective for hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide. After a period of six months, the balloon is removed from the stomach – while the patient continues to receive coaching in nutrition and lifestyle changes to maintain their weight loss long-term.*
