ORBERA Intragastric Balloon

We are one of the few facilities in Southern California performing this procedure!

The ORBERA Intragastric Balloon is a soft, resilient silicone balloon specially designed for obese adults who need help with weight loss and weight maintenance. The balloon is meant for those patients who have a Body Mass Index of 30 to 40 and have already tried more conservative methods of weight reduction.

The procedure consists of a two-part non-surgical program. It begins with inserting the balloon in the patient`s stomach, using sedatives to minimize discomfort. Then the balloon is filled up with saline. This procedure, which takes around 30 minutes, enables the patient to exercise sound portion control. The patient will be able to return home that same day.

After this, the patient undergoes a coaching program. In six months time, the balloon will be removed-again in a non-surgical procedure performed with the patient under sedation.

The data shows that the average person loses 3.1 times as much weight in a six-month period as those who confine themselves to only diet and exercise. After six months, ORBERA users have been shown to achieve a 38.4% mean weight loss. ORBERA is a very safe, effective solution that boasts more than 220,000 placements across the globe. FDA-approved, it allows the patient to develop healthy lifestyle habits so they can keep off excess weight over the long term. The device is manufactured by an industry leader in the field of minimally invasive endoscopic devices and products used in bariatric and gastrointestinal surgical procedures. With over 20 years of success behind it, ORBERA has been thoroughly evaluated in more than 230 published papers around the world.
