Orbera Gastric Balloon
The ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon is a soft yet durable silicone balloon that is designed to assist adult patients with obesity, in losing and maintaining weight. It is intended for adult patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 to 40 who have attempted more conservative weight reduction alternatives. The balloon is part of the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System – a comprehensive, non-surgical two-part program that starts with the durable balloon filling space in a patient’s stomach to reinforce proper portion control.
The balloon is part of the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System – a comprehensive, non-surgical two-part program that starts with the durable balloon filling space in a patient’s stomach to reinforce proper portion control. Data on ORBERA™ collected in the U.S. clinical trial has shown the average person lost 3.1 times the weight as compared with diet and exercise alone within six months.
- Two-Part Program
Once the balloon is in place, the patient receives an individually tailored support program through the ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System team of experts – which may include a dietician, psychologist and exercise physiologist – to help keep them motivated, coordinate their program and help them work through weight loss barriers to meet their long-term weight loss goals.
- Fills The Gap
For many, the weight loss journey leaves patients with little support or options other than diet and exercise and traditional surgery. The approval of ORBERA™ fills this gap in available treatments and is an exciting development for healthcare professionals who are committed to providing patients with less invasive options that can assist them in reaching their long-term weight loss goals. ORBERA™ gives us a new weight loss option to help address what has become a critical health issue in the United States.
- 20-YEARS/220,000 PLACEMENTS
For more than 20 years, the global medical community has been using intragastric balloons from the makers of ORBERA™ to help thousands of people lose weight. More than 220,000 ORBERA™ balloons have been distributed worldwide in over 80 countries.
