KMC Gastroenterology now offers ORBERA for weight loss

Simple Design. 3x Weight Loss. Portion Control.

KMC Gastroenterology recognizes that obesity is a chronic disease and we are pleased to be able to offer new, minimally invasive solutions, like ORBERA™, to help transform the lives of patients before their disease progresses and requires more invasive treatment.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved ORBERA™ to assist adult patients suffering from obesity – with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 – in losing and maintaining weight. It is a safe and effective weight loss solution with 20 years of global experience and real world results. More than 220,000 ORBERA™ balloons have been distributed worldwide in over 80 countries. KMC Gastroenterology is one of the first in the country to offer this new tool in helping people achieve their weight loss goals.

“This is just one of many procedures we offer at KMC to stay at the forefront of GI services for Kansas residents,” said Shekhar Challa, MD, president at Kansas Medical Clinic, PA.

How ORBERA Works:

The ORBERA™ 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. Data on ORBERA™ collected in the U.S. clinical trial has shown that the average person lost 3.1 times the weight as compared with diet and exercise alone within six months.

The Procedure:

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

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. During the time the balloon is in place, patients will meet with our clinic and a dietitian to establish healthy lifestyle habits.
