What Is Intragastric Balloon?
Intragastric balloon is a non-surgical approach to treat obesity. It can be successful in patients who have been not been able to lose weight through traditional methods such as dieting or exercise. During the procedure, the balloon is implanted into the stomach through your mouth using an endoscope. The balloon is filled with saline to fill space in the stomach, giving you the feeling of fullness with less food. The implant is temporary and does not alter your anatomy.
This procedure offers less risk than bariatric surgery, and you may be eligible if you meet certain criteria. Ask your doctor to see if intragastric balloon is right for you.
Intragastric balloon provides obese patients with a non-surgical approach to weight loss.
