ORBERA™: Non-Surgical Weight Loss in Texas

Break through your weight loss barriers.

"Since ORBERA™, my life has changed dramatically. I can participate in a lot more things with my friends and my family. I can do more social activities… I’m just having fun now!"

Stuart, lost 29 lbs*

I'm just having fun  now!

How ORBERA™ Works

Placement of ORBERA™

In a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of an grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can generally go home the very same day.

At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed. Through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed.

Removal of ORBERA™

"I visited a dietitian every month. I learned about lifestyle change, lifestyle eating changes… it's the best thing I've ever done."

Angela, lost 42 lbs*.

It's the best thing!

Want more information about ORBERA™?

ORBERA™ is a two-part, non-surgical weight loss program in Texas that is designed to help patients with portion control.

The first step in the ORBERA™ program is the placement of a soft balloon in your stomach, which is left for six months, to help with portion control. Throughout the process, you will be assisted by the efforts of our support experts in Texas, which may include a dietitian, psychologist, and exercise physiologist. After six months, the balloon is taken out, at which point the second step begins as your support team continues to help guide you towards making healthier lifestyle choices in order to meet your weight loss goals.

Important ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon System Safety Information:
The ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon System is a weight loss aid for adults suffering from obesity, with a body mass index (BMI) ≥30 and ≤40 kg/m2, who have tried other weight loss programs, such as following supervised diet, exercise, and behavior modification programs, but who were unable to lose weight and keep it off.
To receive ORBERA™ you must be willing to also follow a 12-month program, beginning with the placement of ORBERA™ and continuing for 6 months after, that includes a healthy diet and exercise plan. If the diet and exercise program is not followed, you will not experience significant weight loss results; in fact, you may not experience any weight loss.
Losing weight and keeping it off is not easy, so you will be supervised throughout this program by a team of physicians, physiologists, and nutritionists. This team will help you make and maintain major changes in your eating and exercise habits.
ORBERA™ is placed for no more than six months. Any time that the balloon is in the stomach for longer than six months puts you at risk for complications, such as bowel obstruction, which can be fatal.
Some patients are ineligible to receive ORBERA™. Your doctor will ask you about your medical history and will also perform a physical examination to determine your eligibility for the device. Additionally, at the time of placement, the doctor may identify internal factors, such as stomach irritation or ulcers, which may prevent you from receiving ORBERA™.
You must not receive ORBERA™ if you are pregnant, a woman planning to become pregnant within six months’ time, or breast-feeding.
Complications that may result from the use of ORBERA™ include the risks associated with any endoscopic procedure and those associated with the medications and methods used in this procedure, as well as your ability to tolerate a foreign object placed in your stomach. Possible complications include: partial or complete blockage of the bowel by the balloon, insufficient or no weight loss, adverse health consequences resulting from weight loss, stomach discomfort, continuing nausea and vomiting, abdominal or back pain, acid reflux, influence on digestion of food, blockage of food entering the stomach, bacterial growth in the fluid filling the balloon which can lead to infection, injury to the lining of the digestive tract, stomach or esophagus, and balloon deflation.
Important: For full safety information please visit orbera.com/dfu, talk with your doctor, or call Apollo Customer Support at 1-855-MYORBERA.
CAUTION: Rx only.

A comprehensive, two-part program starts with a soft yet durable balloon that fills space in your stomach and reinforces proper portion control, which will help you maintain your weight over time. The balloon is temporary and placed in your stomach for six months. During the placement of the balloon you will receive diet and exercise coaching from our team of experts in Texas to help you work through weight loss barriers to meet your long-term weight loss goals. Your coaching continues even after the balloon is removed.
