The ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System

No drugs, no surgery, just results.

Gain the Edge. Lose the Weight.


Orbera has more than 20 years experience helping thousands of people lose weight. More than 220,000 ORBERA™ balloons have been distributed worldwide in over 80 countries. After six months with the ORBERA™ two-part program, people lost an average 3.1x the weight patients lost with diet & exercise alone. They’ve proven to keep the weight off even after the balloon is removed. With the FDA approval of ORBERA™, patients now have a safe and effective treatment option.

What is ORBERA™?


  • Comprehensive two-part program designed to provide effective, motivating results that you can see. With ORBERA™ patients on average lose 3.1 times the weight they would with diet and exercise alone
  • Starts with a soft balloon placed in your stomach for six months to reinforce proper portion control.
  • The ORBERA balloon take up space in your stomach helps you eat smaller meals.
  • Balloon is temporary and placed in your stomach for six months without surgery or any incisions
  • Patients will receive coaching from a team of experts, which may include a dietician, psychologist, and exercise physiologist
  • Coaching continues after balloon is removed at six months for a total of 12 months

 

The Procedure: Placement and Removal


  • Non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can go home the very same day
  • At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed. Through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed

What to Expect


  • The weight loss is rapid with the majority of weight loss typically occurring in the first three months of treatment
  • On average patients lost 3.1 times the weight loss of diet and exercise alone
  • The adjustments to your eating habits and your continued efforts to stay active will greatly influence your results

To qualify for ORBERA™, you should be an adult, have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 to 40, and be willing to participate in a medically supervised program.
