Obalon Balloon System: The New Kid on the Bariatric Block

Always on the cutting-edge of weight-loss technology, New York Bariatric Group is excited to be able to offer the newest innovation in non-surgical bariatric procedures to our patients. Starting in January 2017, NYBG will add the Obalon Balloon System to our growing list of medically-assisted weight-loss options. The Obalon Balloon System, which has the potential to help “obese people shed almost double the weight” compared to those who changed diet and lifestyle alone, consists of 3 swallowable capsules, each of which contains an expandable balloon.

A study of 387 obese participants, complete with look-alike placebo capsules and daily meetings with a registered dietician, demonstrated the Obalon Balloon System’s potential for success. Six months after the start of the survey, participants who received the real treatment had lost, on average, 25% of their “excess body weight,” putting them in a healthy BMI range.

For patients who are committed to modifying their diet, exercise routine, and daily lifestyle, the Obalon Balloon System is a low-risk non-surgical alternative that provides outstanding results. As always, it’s important to discuss all your options with your doctor before making a decision. The staff at New York Bariatric Group is always available to answer your questions (even the ones you didn’t know you had), and to support you in every step of your weight-loss journey.

“The staff and doctors at the New York Bariatric Group are amazing! They are always patient, helpful, and very understanding and pro-active with questions, problems, etc. After Lap Band surgery I feel fantastic. For the last 6 years I have not had to worry if my clothes would fit. I have been able to maintain my weight loss, and have so much more energy.”

"Dr. Holover has a great personality, I love him, I consider him a good friend, and I recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are amazing. I thought my recovery would be worse, but it wasn’t. It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"

"My recovery was very easy, I started moving around pretty quick because the nurses had me up and about. Dr. Angstadt has a great bedside manner, a cheerful disposition and is very knowledgeable. He was genuinely concerned for me, he answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I couldn’t be happier, I think it is the best decision I ever made."

"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."

"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
