Losing weight with the Orbera® Gastric Balloon
If you have struggled with weight loss due to feelings of hunger, you may feel as though you’ll never reach your weight loss goals. Fortunately, Dr. Alexander Shapsis of the EndoSlim Clinic of Atlantic Gastroenterology in Brooklyn, New York, is pleased to offer a non-surgical approach to ensure you are meeting your goals in a fast and safe manner. Thanks to the Orbera® gastric balloon, many patients have been able to lose weight with a reduced hunger sensation.
What is the Orbera® gastric balloon?
The Orbera® gastric balloon is a specialized treatment in which a balloon-like device is inserted into the stomach and filled with saline. This allows the balloon to occupy space in the stomach, allowing for the sensation of feeling “full.” This significantly reduces food intake in patients and, in turn, ensures results quicker than traditional nutritional changes.
Is the Orbera® gastric balloon safe?
When inserted by a Board-Certified gastroenterologist like Dr. Alexander Shapsis of the EndoSlim Clinic of Atlantic Gastroenterology, you can rest easy knowing your procedure is done by an experienced professional who provides safe and effective results. The procedure is a non-surgical approach to weight loss that can help reduce fat with a reduced desire to eat and it is FDA approved. Patients who undergo this treatment must be mindful of the foods they eat, ensuring they are getting the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients they need to be healthy. Our team may recommend the use of supplements to ensure proper nutrition intake during the time in which the Orbera® gastric balloon is in place.
