HOW DOES ORBERA THE BALLOON WORK?
THE BALLOON ITSELF AND THE INTERVENTION
The Orbera balloon is a weight loss system that uses a gastric balloon that takes up space in the abdomen. The balloon is placed in the stomach through the mouth using a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure while the patient is under mild sedation / intoxication. When the balloon is placed in the abdomen, it is filled with saline, after which it expands and takes up the desired space in the abdomen.
HOW THE ORBERA BALLOON WORKS
The balloon takes up space in the abdomen to help patients lose weight. During the course, the patient is called up every 14 days by one of our dieticians to optimize the treatment and ensure weight loss. The balloon is removed after 6 or 12 months depending on the type.
