The Orbera™ Managed Weight Loss Programs are one of a kind, and on the cutting edge in the weight loss industry. It is not a “diet program” per se, and not surgery or a diet pill regimen. Educate yourself on this weight loss option and hear about the success that other people around the world have had with the balloon. Our New Jersey and New York gastric weight loss balloons, Orbera™, are non-surgical. There is endoscopic placement of the balloon, but no cuts are made and no part of your anatomy is altered. The device is placed into your stomach, filled, and removed 6 months later. This is different from our other treatment options, which are all surgical and meant to be permanent.
The other important facet of the weight loss balloon is that it is more than just a device. The Orbera Weight Loss Programs are designed to support you through 6 months of weight loss with the balloon and a virtual portal option featuring support during and after the balloon is removed. This additional support is important in terms of adjusting to eating without the balloon, and learning how to maintain your successful weight loss. The gastric balloons are recommended for patients with a BMI of 30 or higher, who have not previously undergone a bariatric surgery procedure of any kind, and who have never been diagnosed with eating disorders. They are not recommended for people who have a history of functional or structural disorders of the stomach, pregnant or lactating women, or people with a history of drug or alcohol dependency.
