OrberaTM Weight Loss System
The ORBERATM Weight Loss System is a safe and effective, non-surgical weight loss system designed to provide effective, motivating results. This FDA approved, comprehensive two-part program is designed to achieve long-term weight loss by slowing the digestion of food and encouraging proper portion control. On average, Orbera patients lose 3.1 times more weight than with diet and exercise alone.
About the Procedure (Placement and Removal)
This non-surgical procedure is done by board-certified gastroenterologists, highly skilled in endoscopy procedures and protocols. While under mild sedative, the thin and deflated ORBERATM balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so patients can go home the same day as the procedure.
At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed. Through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed.
What to Expect
With the Orbera Weight Loss System, patients can expect the weight to come off rapidly within the first three months of the program. The procedure, coupled with the nutritional program, provide you with the structure and support to be successful in achieving your weight loss goals. The adjustments to eating habits and lifestyle choices will greatly influence the results of the program. GHG is dedicated to providing not only the medical expertise for the procedure, but also the support and encouragement needed to be successful through every step of the program.
