Orbera™- Managed Weight Loss System

Bay Surgical Weight Loss located now offers the innovative Orbera gastric balloon system for patients from in and around Tampa Bay, Florida. Orbera is a non-invasive weight loss procedure where a deflated balloon is placed in the patient’s stomach, then inflated with a sterile saline solution. The device has a variable volume, allowing the device to be tailored to each individual patient’s needs. Orbera is used in conjunction with a medically supervised diet to increase weight loss for patients with a BMI of 30 or higher. The balloon is usually removed after 6 months. The benefits of Orbera include non-invasive placement, higher rates of weight loss than through diet and exercise alone, and fewer risks than other bariatric procedures. Clinical studies revealed a mean weight loss of 22 pounds, or approximately 10 percent of a patient’s body weight over the course of six months. The device helps patients to change their eating habits and relationships with food, resulting in long-term and sustained weight loss. If you have questions about this innovative weight loss procedure, contact Bay Surgical Weight Loss for further information or to make an appointment for a consultation.
