We are excited offer the Obalon® Gastric Balloon System, the FIRST and ONLY swallowable gastric balloon approved by the FDA to kickstart healthy weight loss. Our team of weight loss experts will begin scheduling appointments for Obalon gastric balloons in January, 2017.

Advantages of the Obalon 3-Balloon System

Effective Weight Loss: The Obalon Balloon System manages appetite by placing swallowable gastric balloons in the stomach so patients can feel full while eating less. Patients using the Obalon weight loss balloon system and diet and exercise program lost twice the amount as patients managing weight by diet and exercise alone. Patients using the Obalon Balloon System were shown to change eating habits and maintain long-term weight loss.

Non-surgical weight loss: The Obalon Balloon System works by patients swallowing the gastric balloon in a pill capsule. The capsule is attached to tiny tube which is used to inflate the gastric balloon once the capsule reaches the stomach.

No down time required: Patients usually resume normal activities immediately after the procedure and placement usually takes around ten minutes, making this procedure ideal for people on the go!
