The Stomach Balloon For Weight Loss: What You Need To Know Now
The new weight-loss system, ORBERA™, was introduced by Dr. Michael Snyder who was one of the first doctors to perform the ORBERA™ procedure in the U.S.
During this segment, Dr. Snyder explains how the ORBERA™ procedure is conducted and what qualifies a potential candidate. “We’ve had diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and bariatric surgery, bands, bypass, sleeves. This is the perfect middle procedure,” mentions Dr. Synder. With 40 million Americans having a BMI of 30 plus this new weight-loss option helps those individuals who don’t qualify for more invasive procedures kick-start their weight-loss journey in a new way.
Dr. Synder further demonstrates the placement of the ORBERA™ balloon, a non-surgical procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes. The placement of the balloon instantly creates a feeling of satiety which, when combined with diet and lifestyle management, will lead to successful weight-loss. Dr. Snyder also discusses the success of ORBERA™ and the amount of weight lost over six months: “In the trial we studied people who had the balloon and not and compared them to each other. People lost an average of 38.4% of excess body weight with the numbers showing 22lbs vs 7lbs.”
After 6 months, the balloon is removed and with the assistance of the new lifestyle lessons patients were able to maintain their weight-loss.
