What is Orbera®?

Orbera® combines the leading gastric balloon technology along with a support team of experts and a personalized diet and exercise plan all-in-one program. If you know it's time for a diet and lifestyle change, Orbera® helps you kick your weight loss into overdrive.

Orbera® begins with a gastric balloon inserted into the stomach and filled with a sterile saline solution. The balloon takes up enough space in your stomach to help you adapt to healthier portion sizes. During this time, you begin your new diet and exercise program. In 6 months, the balloon is removed with a non-surgical procedure. Afterward, you continue your new diet and exercise program for at least 6 more months, to keep the weight off.
