Orbera™ Balloon

What is Orbera™?

  • A comprehensive two-part program designed to provide effective, motivating results that you can see.
  • Starts with a soft balloon placed in your stomach for 6 months to reinforce proper portion control.
  • The Orbera™ balloon takes up space in your stomach to help you eat smaller meals.
  • Patients will receive coaching from a team of experts, which may include a dietician, psychologist, and exercise physiologist.
  • Coaching will continue after the balloon is removed for 6 months. That is a total of 12 months of professional coaching.
  • The Procedure: Placement and Removal

  • Performed under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated Orbera™ balloon is placed into the stomach. The balloon is then filled with saline until it is about the size of a grapefruit.
  • The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the same day.
  • At 6 months the balloon is then removed in the same way it was placed. After mild sedation, the balloon is first deflated and then removed.
  • What to expect?

  • The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first 3 months of treatment.
  • On average, patients lost 3.1 times the weight loss of diet and exercise alone.
  • The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results.
