About This Procedure

Orbera Non-Surgical Gastric Balloon Placement

Orbera – Gastric Balloon

On July 28th, 2015 the FDA approved the ORBERA Intragastric Balloon System. The balloon is delivered into the stomach through a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure via the mouth with no alteration of the patient’s stomach. Once in place, the balloon is filled with salt water (saline) so that it expands into a spherical shape. The balloon can be filled with different amounts of saline (from 400 to 700 cc) to best match the patient’s needs.

ReShape – Integrated Dual Gastric Balloon

On July 28th, 2015 the FDA approved an innovative new technique to treat obesity without invasive surgery. Much like Orbera, the ReShape Integrated Dual Balloon System (ReShape Dual Balloon) encourages weight loss in overweight patients. The ReShape Balloon works by taking up room in the stomach, which causes patients to feel full.

The ReShape Dual Balloon is placed into the stomach through the mouth, using a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure, while the patient is anaesthetized. This outpatient procedure usually takes approximately 30 minutes. Once in place, the ReShape balloon is inflated with a sterile solution, taking up room in the stomach.
