Intra -Gastric
Balloon
Gastric Balloon.jpg

An endoscopic procedure that does not require any incisions.

 

A series of space occupying balloons are introduced inside the stomach.

 

The balloons give a sensation of fullness, and block space that otherwise food fills. Therefore limiting the amount of food ingested.

 

A great option for those patients with mild obesity, who want the freedom from commitment to a permanent surgery.

 

The procedure tends to last less than half hours and it is outpatient.
