Intragastric balloon placement

Intragastric balloon placement is used as a non-surgical weight loss option for patients who are obese or overweight and have not seen success with traditional weight loss methods. The balloon takes up space in the stomach, making patients feel full more quickly and helping to reduce their overall food intake. This can lead to significant weight loss and improve overall health outcomes. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally has a low risk of complications.
At ARS gastro and liver centre, Our mission is to provide compassionate, personalized care that empowers our patients to take control of their health and achieve their ideal weight. Our expert gastroenterologists use this innovative technique to help patients achieve their weight loss goals safely and effectively.
