What is ORBERA?
ORBERA is a non-surgical, medically proven weight loss system designed for long-term weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes. The ORBERA method is designed to work in 2 steps. In the first step, a soft gastric balloon is placed in the stomach to limit your food intake. The placement is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that takes between 20-30 minutes.
The doctor inserts the balloon by going down the throat, with no surgery required. With the balloon safely in place, you will feel satiated faster and for a longer period of time. The balloon stays in place for 6 months while you begin to lose weight. During this time, you will work with our team to adopt a healthier relationship with food and learn how to adapt permanent lifestyle changes.
After the 6 month mark, you will be ready for step 2. We will remove the balloon also in quick and minimally invasive manner, similar to the placement. By this point, you will have 6 months of coaching and effective weight loss completed that will set you up for long-term success. After the removal, we will coach you for 6 additional months and give you all the tools you need to stay healthy.

ORBERA’s most frequently asked questions:
What goes inside the balloon?
The gastric balloon, which is comprised of biocompatible material, is filled with saline solution to expand to approximately the size of a grapefruit.
Does either the placement or the removal hurt?
No. Patients receive a mild sedative for both procedures and should not experience significant discomfort.
Do I have to tell people that I have a gastric balloon?
One of the reasons patients love the ORBERA method is the discretion it allows. Traditional bariatric surgery involves a hospital stay, scars, stitches, postoperative medication, restrictions, and a liquid diet. There are no outside signs of ORBERA, so people will only know you have it if you want them to.
How long has ORBERA been used?
ORBERA has been used to treat obesity for more than 20 years. Over 220,000 ORBERA balloons have been placed worldwide.
Will I be able to exercise with the balloon in place?
Absolutely. A regular exercise regimen will help you not only lose weight faster, but will give you more energy. The ORBERA balloon will not interrupt your daily life.
Can I keep the balloon in for more than 6 months to lose more weight?
No, the ORBERA balloon is FDA approved for a 6 month placement only. During that time, you will be working closely with our team to ensure long-term success. The schedule for step 1 and 2 were developed in a researched, methodical manner for maximum weight loss.
