The intragastric balloon system from Orbera is a weight loss system, where a gastric balloon is used to take up space in the stomach.
We offer free consultation before a possible Gastriball operation, where an available specialist will give you advice and guidance.
ARE YOU SUITABLE?
The calculator shows your BMI and determines if you are fit for a gastric balloon. We do not recommend treatment if your BMI is below 27.
INTRAGASTRIC BALLOON IS A WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM THAT IS an ALTERNATIVE TO WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
Do you suffer from being overweight with a BMI of over 27, and have you considered an obesity surgery? If so, a gastric balloon can be the optimal solution for you. Gastriball can be considered an obesity operation with a balloon but does not require surgical intervention and therefore painless. Similar to obesity surgery, the surgery limits the space in the stomach and thereby your overall caloric intake.
The method is used in overweight adult patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30-40 kg/m2 and who are not in a position to lose weight through diet and exercise.
Orbera’s intragastric balloon system takes up space in the stomach in order to help patients lose weight. The balloon is temporary and should be removed after 6 months.
DIETARY GUIDANCE & TRAINING
At Gastriball we can not only help you with weight loss through a gastric balloon, but also through a professional dietary and training course that can further increase your weight loss.
