How It Works
The entire non-surgical, outpatient procedure takes about 20 minutes.
First, a diagnostic endoscopy is done to ensure that it is safe to perform the procedure. Once you are mildly sedated and comfortable, the procedure can begin.
The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through the esophagus and into your stomach. A syringe is then used to fill the balloon, with a sterile saline solution, to about the size of a grapefruit.
For the next six months the Orbera® balloon is inside your stomach, reducing the amount you can eat, and re-training your brain to better anticipate when your stomach is getting full.
It’s during this time that open and constant communication with your support team is crucial to maximizing the benefits of Orbera®. This means regular face-to-face sessions with your treatment team, dietician, fitness trainer, psychologist and doctor.
During these first six months, with the stomach balloon and support team working in tandem, patients see the most drastic results – Losing 20 to 50 pounds (sometimes even more).
After you’ve had six months to change the way you eat and work with the support team to improve your nutrition, the balloon is removed. The simple and non-surgical procedure is very similar to the placement process, only taking 20 minutes.
For the remaining six months of the program, you’ll continue working closely with your Specialist to follow a personalized diet and exercise program.
At an additional cost, you can access Apollo Care, a tool that gives you convenient access to a virtual support team of nutritionists and dietitians via your phone or tablet.

How It Works & What to Expect
ESG reduces the size of your stomach without incisions or scars using the FDA-authorized Apollo ESG™ System. This small suturing device attaches to a camera passed through your mouth into your stomach while you are asleep. A specially-trained doctor uses the Apollo ESG™ System to sew your stomach into a smaller shape, so you eat less and feel full faster. Watch the video to see how ESG and the Apollo ESG™ System work.
Following the ESG procedure, you’ll feel fuller when eating smaller portions and get a better understanding of just how much intake your body needs to lose weight. This helps to develop healthier eating habits moving forward, so you can enjoy sustained results.
After meeting with your doctor and nurses, you will be given medication to help you sleep and feel comfortable during the procedure.
Most patients typically can go home the same day. However, there may be some discomfort from the procedure. Do not drive or operate motorized vehicles or equipment the remainder of the day. Avoid alcoholic beverages. You may resume activity as soon as you are comfortable.
To help your stomach heal, you will be on a liquid diet for the first week or two, followed by pureed and soft foods for the next two weeks. Typically, by week four, you will be able to resume eating solid foods. Follow your doctor’s specific instructions.
With less room in your stomach, you should begin to feel full faster and lose weight. The procedure helps you to develop better eating habits and change your lifestyle for lasting results.
