ORBERA™ Non-Surgical Weight Loss Treatment Is Here

Available NowOne size-fits-all rarely does, whether it’s in regard to clothing or medical treatment. Everyone’s body, experiences, needs, and goals are unique — shouldn’t weight loss methods be just as individual? Introducing ORBERA™ Managed Weight Loss System, an FDA-approved, non-surgical approach that can be tailored to your anatomical requirements and desired outcome. Our board certified bariatric surgeons now offer this comprehensive program at our practice, and it may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

ORBERA™ is different because it combines proven methods and customizes them to your needs and goals. The two-part procedure begins with the non-surgical placement of a balloon in your stomach, which is filled with saline to help you feel full and limit the amount of food that can be consumed. The balloon is inserted through the throat endoscopically, so no incisions will be necessary. The balloon remains in place for six months as you gradually lose weight and adjust to new, smaller portion sizes. After six months, the balloon will be removed — no surgery needed.

The second part of the process is the comprehensive diet, fitness, and weight loss assistance program that will be provided by a team of professionals. You will learn how to make healthier food choices, limit calories, exercise effectively, and improve your overall health. For the six months following removal of the balloon, this weight loss support system will help you continue to lose weight as safely as possible while allowing you to develop the habits that will keep the weight off for the long term.

It’s time to start thinking about weight loss in a different way, and ORBERA™ does just that. If you’re 18 years of age or older with a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40, then ORBERA™ may be right for you. Contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
