What is Orbera?

The Orbera is an inflatable silicone balloon that is filled with saline solution and placed endoscopically into the stomach. The procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes to perform and is done under mild sedation. The intragastric ballon is then removed after 6 months. During this time frame and beyond, you will work together with the New Hope’s bariatric support team for a personalized weight loss plan.
