6-Month Balloon

The intragastric balloon is formed by a high quality silicone balloon with a valve system. It is specially designed to remain in the stomach for a period of up to 6 months.

The balloon is placed endoscopically and filled with physiological serum causing an almost permanent feeling of fullness, with the patient being able to return home half an hour post operation.

Once the balloon is fitted, follow-up is carried out, both from the nutritional-psychological and digestive viewpoint periodically. The balloon is removed after 6 months, during which the patient will have already acquired healthy eating habits that we will continue to monitor through our multidisciplinary team for a further 6 months.

12-Month Balloon

If you have been looking for a safe and non-surgical method to start your weight loss and regain a healthy lifestyle, take a look at the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon. It is an effective, reversible and less expensive alternative to weight loss surgery for overweight or obese people.

How does it work?

The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is a gastric balloon filled with medical grade saline solution that rests on the stomach cavity and decreases appetite by occupying approximately one third of the stomach volume.

Furthermore, with the gastric balloon in place, the stomach empties more slowly, maintaining the feeling of fullness for longer.

The Spatz3 adjustable balloon is inserted in an outpatient procedure that lasts about 20 minutes and is performed under sedation. No incisions or hospital admission are needed. The patient will be discharged and home a few hours later.

The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is a tool that helps you lose weight and with which you will obtain better results while using it along with diet, exercise and a behaviour al modification programme.

The amount of weight you lose will depend on how closely you follow your diet and adopt long-term lifestyle changes. With the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon average weight losses of 16 kg at 6 months and 25 kg after 12 months will be obtained. Greater weight losses have been achieved depending on your initial weight and motivation.

The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is the only one that can be adjusted, which means that your doctor can increase your weight loss when necessary with a simple outpatient adjustment of the balloon’s volume.

Upon removal, our multidisciplinary team will continue to monitor the patient for 6 further months.

IN ALL TREATMENTS

All our treatments include the accompaniment of a team of nutritionists and psychologists to monitor the patient’s progress until the programme is completed.

Thanks to the trust that our patients have placed in us, our centre is a reference point for digestive pathologies.
