Orbera Weight Loss Balloon


The Orbera weight loss balloon is a non-surgical device. 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. Compared to other surgical options, the balloon is a temporary option.

The Orbera balloon is approved for adults with a BMI between 30 and 40with at least one medical condition associated with obesity. Patients can expect to lose approximately 25-70lbs, assumed that the program is followed correctly.

Insurance currently does not cover Orbera weight loss balloon but financing options are available.
