ORBERA Gastric Balloon

Al Taie Center offers you expertise in the ORBERA gastric balloon system, a nonsurgical treatment for obesity. In addition:

We treat patients with complex conditions. This includes those who have been turned away for bariatric treatment at other hospitals.
Our surgeons are highly trained in this technique.
Our dietitians and other specialists will work closely with you throughout the 12-month program to help you achieve lasting weight loss.
The gastric balloon can greatly improve obesity-related health conditions.
What is a gastric balloon?
We use the ORBERA Managed Weight Loss System. You are sedated, and doctors guide a thin, soft balloon down your throat and into your stomach.

The balloon is filled with saline until it is about the size of a grapefruit. The procedure normally takes about 10 to 15 minutes. You usually go home the same day. After six months, the balloon is emptied and removed. 
You may not feel hungry the first couple of weeks, leading to rapid weight loss. Weight loss will slow after that.
Most patients lose about 10 percent to 15 percent of their body weight while the balloon is in place.
Maintaining a lower body weight afterward depends on your commitment to your diet and exercise plan.
