The ORBERA weight loss system introduces a significant advancement in medical weight loss, creating a bridge between weight loss surgery and traditional methods. With the ORBERA system, you can lose weight more quickly than through a traditional diet and exercise alone, but without obesity medication and weight loss surgery.

With ORBERA, average weight loss results are three times higher than those achieved through diet and exercise alone.

How Intragastric Balloon works

The ORBERA system features an intragastric balloon, which is inserted into the stomach in an outpatient endoscopic procedure that typically lasts as little as 20 minutes. Once in place, the balloon is filled with a saline solution that inflates it to about the size of a grapefruit.

The pressure of the intragastric balloon helps minimize hunger, reducing the amount of food one can comfortably eat at once. The balloon also supports smaller portion sizes and reduced snacking, which encourages weight loss.

Benefits of ORBERA

  • No incisions
  • No painful recovery period
  • No post-procedure wound care
  • No scarring

ORBERA Intragastric Balloon is FDA-approved as a safe and effective weight loss system, with more than 220,000 successful placements worldwide. While using the ORBERA system, you will be encouraged to work with your weight loss doctor to develop long-term lifestyle changes to your diet and exercise habits. The medical weight loss program will help you achieve long-term weight loss.

The balloon is removed after six months through a second endoscopic procedure. Since this is not a weight loss surgery, the digestive tract is not changed with Intragastric Balloon.

ORBERA is an option for those in need of weight loss support but do not qualify for weight loss surgery. After the balloon is removed, you will continue working with your weight loss doctor to develop long-term weight management strategies.
