Endoscopic Weight-Loss

Dr. Kurland is dedicated to helping patients lose weight safely and sustainably by performing the endoscopic weight-loss procedure using the Orbera weight-loss gastric balloon. The weight-loss gastric balloon is a device that is inserted into the stomach to help patients feel more full quickly. Weight-loss gastric balloons are performed on patients with a body mass index (BMI) up to 40. The procedure helps decrease risks of developing more serious weight-related health problems including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), sleep apnea and type 2 diabetes.

If diet and exercise did not help you lose weight in the past, a weight-loss gastric balloon could be an option for you. Call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kurland to discuss options.
