The Orbera Gastric Balloon System is the FIRST and ONLY FDA-approved balloon system for weight loss. This non-surgical outpatient procedure takes about 20 minutes. Your doctor will pass an intragastric balloon through your mouth, down the esophagus and into your stomach. Once in place it is filled with saline. The intragastric balloon lies in your stomach and takes up space. This will slow how food passes through your stomach.
The intragastric balloon is removed after six months in a non-surgical outpatient procedure. You will continue working closely with your doctor and dietitians to follow a personalized diet and exercise program.

Is The Orbera Gastric Balloon Right For You?
The Orbera Gastric Balloon System is designed specifically to help jump-start and facilitate weight loss. If you have failed to lose weight with diet and exercise alone, the Orbera Gastric Balloon System could be right for you.
The Orbera Gastric Balloon System is designed for patients with a BMI in the 30-40 range, and is designed to be partnered with proper nutrition and moderate intensity exercise.
The Orbera Gastric Balloon System is a temporary treatment, lasting no longer than 6 months. With proper diet and exercise, weight loss should continue or be maintained after removal of the balloons. 89% of people who used the Gastric Balloon System maintained their weight loss 6 months after removal when combined with diet and exercise.
