Patients with obesity often are discouraged after diet, exercise, and behavioral modification are unsuccessful. The ORBERA system is a safe and effective solution for adults seeking a non-surgical way to achieve a healthier life after these methods have failed. A physician places an expandable, soft silicone balloon in the stomach, where it is then inflated using sterile saline water. Since it occupies a large portion of the stomach, ORBERA allows patients to feel full more quickly during meals, creating a fullness and sense of satisfaction that supports portion control and weight loss.
Lose Weight with an Intragastric Balloon System
Through non-surgical ORBERA system, patients can achieve a healthier life when they include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. It consists of a six month placement of an intragastric balloon followed by an additional six months of nutritional and behavioral coaching. Results vary based on how closely patients follow necessary lifestyle modifications, but on average study participants lost 3x the amount of weight of those who used diet and exercise alone after six months.
For adults who have a body mass index (BMI) or 30 to 40 who are willing to take part in a medically supervised program, ORBERA is a proven way to lose weight. Although the majority of weight loss occurs during the six-month placement of the intragastric balloon, the coaching and expert guidance that patients receive help them to maintain healthy lifestyle habits. ORBERA allows patients to break through weight loss barriers and achieve long-lasting results. * individual results may vary.
