NJ Endoscopic Intragastric Balloon

Obese patients who have not been able to lose weight using a variety of weight-loss programs, but have not had any gastric surgery procedures, may have success using a procedure called an endoscopic intragastric balloon. This is a medical-grade silicone balloon filled with saline (salt water) solution that is implanted in the stomach for up to six months. It must be used on a temporary basis, because side effects can occur if left in the stomach longer than expected.
