Gastric Balloon Centre is a modern and unique clinic, which offers non-surgical treatment for patients who have a BMI over 27 (calculate bmi) and who would like to lose weight. The treatment is done in local anesthesia by placing a balloon into the stomach using an indoscope.
The balloon takes up some of the space in the stomach to minimize the food intake. Patients report that they have a lasting feeling of satiety. The procedure does not require surgery and is done at the clinic in local anesthesia.
The intragastic balloon consists of a soft, tolerable silicone, which is filled up with salt water. The filled intragastic balloon creates a feeling of satiety. In generel the balloon will be removed after 6-12 months depending on the type of the balloon.
Orbera Intragastric Ballonsystem is a weight loss system that uses a gastric balloon that takes up space in the stomach. The balloon is placed through the mouth using a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure while the patient is under mild sedation/intoxication. When the balloon is placed it will be filled with salt water so it expands into a spherical shape. The balloon can be filled with different amounts of salt water (from 500 to 700 ml) depending on the amount that is best suited for the size of the patient’s stomach.
Gastric Balloon Centre has introduced a new method to minimize both nausea, vomiting and pain after the intragastric balloon has been placed. We want to ensure that patients with intragastric balloon are doing well throughout the period with the balloon.
