Orbera Gastric Balloon
The gastric balloon is a non-surgical, endoscopic weight loss procedure where a saline filled balloon is placed into the stomach. The balloon reduces the amount one can eat and causes one to feel full sooner and longer. Patients can lose up to 3 times the amount of weight compared to diet and exercise alone. Candidates for this procedure typically have a BMI between 30-40 and usually prefer a non-invasive approach and/or are not a candidate for surgery.
