About Gastric Balloon
For those with a lower body mass index (BMI) who desire to reduce weight without surgery, the gastric balloon is a less invasive weight management method. An endoscope is used to introduce a deflated silicone balloon into the stomach during the surgery. A sterile saline solution is injected into the balloon once it is within the stomach, inflating it and taking up space there. Patients are able to eat smaller quantities and consume less calories as a result of the sense of fullness this causes.
Procedure of Gastric Balloon
- A comprehensive evaluation is conducted to assess the patient's eligibility and overall health for the procedure.
- The gastric balloon insertion using an endoscope is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment that takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
- The gaastric balloon placement and inflation are done very cautiously as one tiny mistake can ruin the process
- After six months, the balloon is removed in a similar manner as it was placed, using an endoscope.
