About ORBERA™ Intragastric 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.
    • In a non-surgical procedure typically 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 normally takes about 20-30 minutes and people can generally go home the same day
    • Once the balloon is in place, the 12-month coaching program begins.
    • 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 and then removed.
  • 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.
  • ORBERA™ is an incision-less, non-surgical solution for patients who are not appropriate for or considering invasive surgery, but for whom diet & exercise or pharmaceutical interventions have not worked.
  • For many, the weight loss journey leaves patients with little support or options in the gap between diet & exercise and surgery.
  • ORBERA™ is a safe and effective weight loss solution with over 220,000 placements worldwide.
  • With over 20 years of global experience from the makers of ORBERA™, ORBERA™ is an FDA approved weight loss solution that focuses on developing sustainable, healthy habits that will help you keep the weight off over time.
  • ORBERA™ is manufactured by Apollo Endosurgery Inc., a leader in minimally invasive endoscopic surgical products for bariatric and gastrointestinal procedures.
