Important ORBERA® Intragastric Balloon System Safety Information: 
The ORBERA® Intragastric Balloon System is a weight loss aid for adults suffering from obesity, with a body mass index (BMI) ≥30 and ≤40 kg/m2, who have tried other weight loss programs, such as following supervised diet, exercise, and behavior modification programs, but who were unable to lose weight and keep it off. 

To receive ORBERA® you must be willing to also follow a 12-month program, beginning with the placement of ORBERA® and continuing for 6 months after, that includes a healthy diet and exercise plan. If the diet and exercise program is not followed, you will not experience significant weight loss results; in fact, you may not experience any weight loss.

Losing weight and keeping it off is not easy, so you will be supervised throughout this program by a team of physicians, physiologists, and nutritionists. This team will help you make and maintain major changes in your eating and exercise habits.

ORBERA® is placed for no more than six months. Any time that the balloon is in the stomach for longer than six months puts you at risk for complications, such as bowel obstruction, which can be fatal.

Some patients are ineligible to receive ORBERA®. Your doctor will ask you about your medical history and will also perform a physical examination to determine your eligibility for the device. Additionally, at the time of placement, the doctor may identify internal factors, such as stomach irritation or ulcers, which may prevent you from receiving ORBERA®.

You must not receive ORBERA® if you are pregnant, a woman planning to become pregnant within six months’ time, or 

Complications that may result from the use of ORBERA® include the risks associated with any endoscopic procedure and those associated with the medications and methods used in this procedure, as well as your ability to tolerate a foreign object placed in your stomach. Possible complications include: partial or complete blockage of the bowel by the balloon, insufficient or no weight loss, adverse health consequences resulting from weight loss, stomach discomfort, continuing nausea and vomiting, abdominal or back pain, acid reflux, influence on digestion of food, blockage of food entering the stomach, bacterial growth in the fluid filling the balloon which can lead to infection, injury to the lining of the digestive tract, stomach or esophagus, and balloon deflation.

ORBERA® Has Been Featured On:

Our Commitment to Personalized, Quality Care
Ensures Your Success

Once you meet with us to discuss weight loss goals, a comprehensive program will be developed for you, which can include one-on-one coaching and expert guidance on dietary nutrition and fitness. It won't be like anything you've tried before, because it includes ORBERA®.
The ORBERA® balloon is placed into the stomach in a simple, non-surgical outpatient procedure. First, a diagnostic endoscopy is done to ensure that there are no contraindications and that it is safe to perform the procedure. Once you are mildly sedated and comfortable, the procedure can begin.
The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the esophagus and into your stomach. A syringe is then used to fill the balloon with a sterile saline solution. Once the weight loss balloon has been filled with saline it is about the size of a grapefruit. The entire procedure takes about 20-30 minutes. After roughly two hours of recovery, most patients head home to begin the rest of their new life.
The ORBERA® weight loss balloon stays in your stomach for the first six months after the procedure. With the stomach balloon and support team, patients usually see the most drastic results in the first six months. It is very important to use this time to develop healthy habits that will continue for not only the 12-month weight loss program, but for the rest of your life. During the first six months you will learn how to use your ORBERA® as a tool to aid in your weight loss. Having open and constant communication with your support team is crucial to maximizing the benefits of the ORBERA® weight loss system. Over the next 12-months you will have regular face-to-face sessions with your treatment team, dietitian, fitness trainer, psychologist and exercise psychologist.
The removal of the stomach balloon means that the first part in the ORBERA® weight loss system is complete. Now it's time to continue your hard work and dedication to ensure that your new and healthy lifestyle is here to stay. Having constant and honest communication with your support team is essential in achieving and maintaining your weight loss goals. The ORBERA® Coach tool provides you with convenient access to your support team to help you make healthy choices on a daily basis. ORBERA Coach is available online as well as via an App for your mobile device.

What Happens If I Choose ORBERA®?

Once the stomach balloon has been in place for six months the balloon is removed. The simple and non-surgical procedure is very similar to the placement process. Once the ORBERA® gastric balloon has been removed it is very important to continue working closely with your support team and coaches to follow the personal diet and exercise plan given to you. This will help to keep you in a positive and healthy mindset while achieving your weight loss goals.
When your yearlong program is over, maintaining the healthy lifestyle choices you have established will help you continue to lose weight and keep it off.
Get ready for feelings of joy and accomplishment in the work you've done and the results you've achieved. The information, tools, and support gained along your journey will allow you to stick to healthy lifestyle habits and maintain your weight loss.

ORBERA® vs Diet & Exercise Alone

It’s been shown that the average person loses 3x more weight with ORBERA® than with diet and exercise alone. Here’s some of the reasons why:
  • Diets can leave you feeling hungry or dissatisfied. ORBERA® helps by taking up room in the stomach and encouraging portion control.
  • When you’re overweight, exercise can be challenging and uncomfortable. With ORBERA® aiding your weight loss, physical activity can be more comfortable.

ORBERA® vs Other Gastric Balloons

Over the past 20 years, ORBERA® has become the #1 weight loss balloon in the world and is the only one recognized by the ASGE for its safety and effectiveness*. No other FDA-approved gastric balloon has shown more weight loss during their US clinical studies.

ORBERA® vs Surgery

ORBERA® is a non-surgical weight loss procedure, which means no incisions, stitches, or scars. It takes just 20-30 minutes; most people go home the same day. And, importantly, the balloon is in place only temporarily, as opposed to permanent surgical alterations.

"I feel great! It's one of the best things I've ever done in my life."

After failing over and over again with other weight loss options, Marie decided to try ORBERA®. She believes the lifestyle changing weight loss system has helped her to achieve her weight loss goals.

ANDREW LOST 30 lbs.*

"I lost 30 lbs. with ORBERA® and kept the weight off for 5 years."

Andrew wasn't happy with himself. Drowning in disappointment, Andrew would look in the mirror and wonder if the day would ever come where he would feel comfortable in his own skin. Andrew believes trying ORBERA® was a changing point in his life. By controlling his portions and eating slower he was able to change the way he ate. It has changed Andrew's life and he believes it can change yours too.

At this time, insurance does not cover the ORBERA® weight loss balloon in the United States.  However, our practice is now offering it at an introductory rate, which includes insertion, removal, and a 12 month monitored weight loss program. 

We also have financing options available through national agencies and will work with you to understand your cost and financing options.  Many patients don’t realize the cost they spend on weight loss products or the deductible they need to meet on insurance programs can be higher than the cost of this non-surgical, incision less weight loss solution.  And for many patients, the procedure is tax deductible and can ultimately save patients 30% by using a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account.  Speak with our team today to get started.
