The Balloon Itself and the intervention

The Orbera balloon is a weight loss system that uses a gastric balloon to take up space in the abdomen. The balloon is placed in the stomach through the mouth using a non-invasive endoscopic procedure while the patient is under mild sedation. When the balloon is placed in the abdomen, it is filled with saline, after which it expands and take 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. . The balloon is removed after 6 or 12 months depending on the type.
