Learn More About the Weight Loss Balloon

The Orbera weight loss balloon was approved by the FDA in 2015. It is a nonsurgical device, and is placed in the stomach endoscopically while the patient is under light sedation. The balloon is then filled with saline, and stays in place for 6 months. After 6 months the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed.

In clinical trials, patients who had the Orbera lost 3 times as much weight as patients who used diet and exercise alone.
