Which balloon weight loss program do I choose?

August 27, 2017

Since the most recent news on CNN, and other media, about the deaths associated with balloon weight loss, there have been many concerned and confused patients out there.

First, let me tell you that the balloon system I use in my practice is called “Obalon”.  The deaths that were reported had no connection with Obalon, but were seen in the two other competitors: ReShape and Orbera.

Second, there is one huge difference between Obalon and the other balloons, and that is: the other two systems (ReShape and Orbera) are fluid filled and hence, they are heavy and they sink to the bottom of the stomach, while Obalon is gas filled and weighs less than a penny.

To get more details about the differences between Obalon and other systems, please see below:
