The gastric Balloon is a nonsurgical procedure indicated for patients who are either overweight and have failed diet attempts or cannot go on diet due to their current life style. It is an inflatable medical device that is temporarily placed into the stomach to reduce weight. The use of the balloon should be complemented with counseling and nutritional support or advice.
