Home • ORBERA®


ORBERA® is an FDA-approved non-surgical procedure for obesity performed in our in-house endoscopic suite. The procedure has been successful in adults with a body mass index of 30-40 when it is coupled with diet and exercise.

Are you a good candidate for ORBERA®?

ORBERA® is designed for adults who are obese and have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight through diet and exercise.

You may be a good candidate for the ORBERA® weight loss procedure if you are an adult, age 18 or older, have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 and have not had previous gastrointestinal or bariatric surgery, or have a history of hiatal hernia or acid reflux.

Commitment to changing your lifestyle is also a key component of eligibility. You also need to be prepared to follow the dietary and exercise protocols after the procedure. Our staff will support you extensively through the process, but your dedication to lifestyle change will be an essential part of your weight loss journey.

We are committed to your weight loss success. Consult with Dr. Mark Lamet or Dr. Ari Lamet to determine if the ORBERA® gastric balloon is right for you.

How does the ORBERA® balloon
procedure work?

After your initial consultation, you are ready to schedule your procedure. Our office in-house suite is intentionally designed to accommodate you during this 30-minute outpatient procedure. You will be sedated as we inset the weight loss balloon through your esophagus and into your stomach. Once the balloon is in place, we inflate it with a sterile saline solution. The inflated balloon will help you feel fuller sooner and jumpstart your journey to successful weight loss. There are no incisions so there are no scars.

The balloon is only one part of your weight loss solution.

The weight loss balloon remains in your stomach for six months. During that time, our trained nutritionist will be working virtually with you to help you develop healthy eating habits. The personalized diet and exercise protocol our nutritionist creates with you is an essential part of the success of this procedure.

“Our patients, who have followed the protocol after the procedure, have lost an average of 10 pounds a month for six months. Those who commit to ongoing sessions with the nutritionist for an additional six months, which is included in our fee, have experienced additional weight loss,“ explained Mark Lamet MD.

“From check-in to check out great service! The staff is courteous, helpful and keep you informed and are all very capable and friendly! Highly recommended.”
