The ORBERA ® Intragastric Balloon is part of the ORBERA ® Managed Weight Loss System, a comprehensive, non-surgical two- part program that includes a balloon filling space in a patient's stomach to reinforce proper portion control. Once the balloon is in place, the patient receives an individually tailored support program through a support team of experts—which may include a dietitian, psychologist, and exercise physiologist—to help keep them motivated, coordinate their program, and help them work through weight loss barriers to meet their long-term weight loss goals. Coaching takes place over 12 months, even though the balloon is removed after six months. The program is designed to help the patient develop sustainable, healthy habits that will help keep weight off over time. Emerging Technologies Laparoscopic continued AUTOMATED MEDICAL PRODUCTS CORP.
