Important Notice

The Gastric Balloon may be useful for people who are considered too overweight and at increased risk for surgical procedures such as joint replacement or other bariatric surgery. The pre-operative use of the Gastric Balloon to successfully reduce weight may help reduce the risks associated with surgical procedures on overweight patients.

The amount of weight lost depends both on the feeling of fullness caused by the Gastric Balloon and on the patient’s motivation and commitment to a new lifestyle and eating habits. It is important to understand the advantages, disadvantages, and potential risks involved.
