How Orbera™ Works

ORBERA™ was designed by a team of physicians to be a simple yet powerful weight loss solution. A comprehensive, two-part program starts with a soft yet durable balloon that fills space in your stomach and reinforces proper portion control, which will help you maintain your weight over time. The balloon is temporary and placed in your stomach for six months.

Once the gastric balloon is in place, a team of experts at Surgical Healing Arts Center will help provide a customized diet and exercise program to fit your needs to optimize success. Your coaching continues even after the balloon is removed at six months for a total of 12 months.

The two-part program is designed to provide effective, motivating results and the insights you need to help establish healthy behaviors keep the weight off in the long run. If it’s momentum you need, ORBERA™ can help you get rolling.


 

Placement and Removal of Orbera™ Weight Loss Balloon

Placement
In a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, the thin and deflated ORBERA™ balloon is placed into the stomach. It is then filled with saline until it’s about the size of an grapefruit. The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes so you can generally go home the very same day.

Removal
At six months, the balloon is removed in the same way it was placed. Through a non-surgical procedure done under a mild sedative, it is deflated first then removed. Check out this video that describes the placement and removal process.

Patient Testimonial

 
  • He is so well respected by other docs and RNs. He cares for you like you're family. Don't take my word for it-I just simply trusted my life in him & his staff. I had complications several years ago by another surgeon and I called every surgeons from Tampa to Miami to see if they could help me. Some offices Didn't bother calling me back. Whether you are a new patient or one like with me with chronic problems - he's honest to see what can be done. I had my original surgery done with a big cut. He was able to fix me with the camera/scope!–Madison

  • I came to Dr. Shieh as a very difficult case, Receiving iron infusions for 3 years at the cancer specialist. Totally depleted of all my nutrients. He diagnosed my staples in my stomach as corroded and on the edge of falling out. He is my angel and I am very excited to have a gastric bypass revision with a feeding tube. I don;t wish this on anyone but he is what Lee County needs. Don't hesitate to contact his office. 150% satisfaction –Thomas

  • Dr. Shieh is the kindest yet most professional doctor I have ever met. After meeting him when my fianc had a surgery performed by him, I sought him out for a surgery I needed. He was clear in explaining the problem and the treatment, and personally called me the day after my surgery to check on my comfort level. I would recommend him to anyone and could not be happier with my experience.–Sharon
