The Orbera Intragastric Balloon is an approved weight loss option with 20 years of clinical data to support is effectiveness. Representing an advancement in non-surgical weight loss, Orbera patients lose an average of over 3x more weight that those employing diet and exercise alone.
The Intragastric balloon does not require any incisions in the abdomen as it is placed endoscopically – via the mouth – under mild sedation. Total procedure time is under 30 minutes and patients can go home on the same day. The balloon is removed just as simply.

While the balloon remains in the stomach for 6 months, your weight loss journey with us lasts a year. During this time, we will help you develop the healthy eating and exercise habits necessary to maintain weight loss long after the balloon has been removed.
