Orbera Endoscopic Balloon: A Non-Surgical Weight Loss Solution What Is the Orbera Endoscopic Balloon?

The Orbera Endoscopic Balloon is a medical device designed to help individuals lose weight by reducing the capacity of the stomach. It is a non-surgical and temporary solution for weight loss. The balloon is inserted into the stomach through a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure, where it is inflated with saline solution to take up space in the stomach.

How Does the Orbera Endoscopic Balloon Work? 

Once placed in the stomach, the Orbera Balloon occupies space, leading to a feeling of fullness and reduced food intake. Patients can achieve portion control and develop healthier eating habits while working with a multidisciplinary weight loss team to support their journey. The balloon remains in place for about six months, after which it is removed in another endoscopic procedure.
