What is a gastric balloon?
Let Us Help You Become a Healthier Version of Yourself
A gastric balloon refers to a medical device that is inserted into your stomach to help with weight loss. The balloon itself is inflatable and placed into your stomach by a weight loss doctor, often after other weight loss approaches have failed. The balloon limits the amount of food that can be put in the stomach and increases feelings of fullness. As a result, patients are often able to lose weight and overcome weight-related health conditions like obesity, depression, and high blood pressure. At the Weight Loss and Wellness Center, our weight physicians can help you determine the best possible treatment options for your situation and help guide you in overcoming your weight issues and becoming a healthier you.

In addition to those who would like to lose weight, the gastric balloon is commonly recommended for those who have one or more of the following weight-related health conditions:
