Orbera Balloon Implantation

The Orbera Intragastric Balloon is an example of an endoscopic treatment for weight loss.   Endoscopic treatments are performed using a fibre optic  flexible scope inserted via the mouth into the stomach.  Therefore the procedures involve no surgical scars and are generally quite safe.

The Orbera intragastric balloon is a well studied endoscopic intervention for weight loss that has been implanted in Australia for over a decade.

A 600ml fluid filled balloon is inserted into your stomach where it stays until removal.  It gives you a sense of satiety and reduced appetite, reducing your desire for food and portion sizes.  It can produce moderate weight loss over this time and has a good safety profile. 

It may be suitable for patients who do not qualify for conventional weight loss surgeries

* Please note that the balloon must be removed after a 6 month period.  Reimplantations may be possible subsequently however *
