Lose weight and maintain lifelong healthy habits with Orbera!

The Orbera Weight Loss Balloon is a non-surgical weight loss procedure that can provide you with drastic results in only 6 months! On average patients lost 3X more weight than diet and exercise alone!

The Orbera Balloon is inserted through your mouth and down your esophagus during a quick non-surgical procedure! There is no need for any incisions, stitches, or scars. The Orbera is a balloon made of a soft, smooth silicone rubber, and it is filled with a saline solution once it has been placed in the stomach. It is designed to take up space in the stomach which means there is less space for food.

It is not permanent and after six months of weight loss, the balloon is carefully removed and the after care program starts.

The cost of the Orbera also includes 12 months of specialized, monitored coaching to help you adjust to your new and improved lifestyle. You can find more information by clicking on the Orbera Weight Loss Ballon section of our website.
