Gastric Balloon

It is a novel non-surgical stomach reduction treatment designed for patients who need to lose between 15 and 35 kg.

Innovative non-surgical stomach reduction treatment.

6-Month Balloon

The intragastric balloon is formed by a high quality silicone balloon with a valve system.

How does it work?

It is specially designed to remain in the stomach for a period of up to 6 months.

How is it placed?

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.

How long does the treatment last?

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.

Endoscopic, non-surgical treatment.

It is a simple and considered safe technique. The procedure is comfortable.

With our nutritional and psychological support.

No anesthesia, quick recovery

The placement procedure takes only a few minutes.

All our treatments include the support of a team of nutritionists and psychologists to follow up with the patient throughout the program.

Gastric Balloon for 12 months

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 Adjustable Spatz3 Balloon is filled with medical-grade saline solution and occupies approximately one-third of the stomach cavity, reducing appetite.

Additionally, with the gastric balloon in place, the stomach empties more slowly, prolonging the feeling of fullness.

How is it placed?

The Adjustable Spatz3 Balloon is inserted in an outpatient procedure that lasts about 20 minutes and is performed under sedation. No incisions or hospitalization are required. Patients can return home within a few hours. The Adjustable Spatz3 Balloon is a tool that aids in weight loss and delivers better results when used alongside a diet, exercise, and behavior modification program. The amount of weight loss achieved will depend on how closely the patient follows the diet and adopts long-term lifestyle changes. With the Adjustable Spatz3 Balloon, average weight losses of 16 kg at 6 months and 25 kg at 12 months have been achieved. Greater weight loss has been reported depending on the patient’s initial weight and motivation.

The Adjustable Spatz3 Balloon is the only one that can be adjusted, allowing the doctor to increase weight loss when needed through a simple outpatient adjustment of the balloon volume.

After removal, our multidisciplinary team will continue to monitor the patient for an additional 6 months.
