A Non-Surgical Weight Loss Procedure That Supports 3x Faster Weight Loss.
For patients who are not set on undergoing bariatric surgery, there are many options a patient could take that can help them lose weight – Endobariatrics. The goal of Endobariatrics is to fill the gap between surgery and pharmacotherapy. The Intragastric balloon is one of the ways and is of the same primary principle of bariatric surgeries. Inflating a balloon in the stomach is to make people feel full and create restriction as you would find in the gastric sleeve and gastric banding.
Intragastric balloon is typically part of a structured program, with diet and exercise. There are several leading intragastric balloons, including Orbera, Spatz, and ReShape Duo. Obalon just received FDA approval and is expected to available for in 2017.
Currently, Mexico Bariatric Center offers the two leading intragastric balloons: Orbera and the Spatz.
