Gastric Balloon, also called Gastric Ballooning or Intragastric Balloon (IGB), is a reversible and incision-free weight loss procedure. This procedure is popular in Europe, Canada, Australia, Mexico and South America. A deflated gastric balloon is inserted endoscopically into the stomach through the mouth and throat. The balloon is filled with air or liquid (saline solution). The small tube or catheter attached to the balloon then is taken out and the balloon’s valve self-seals itself. The full balloon is too large to pass into the bowel, unlike the older models.
Mexico Bariatric Center uses full service hospital dedicated to bariatric surgeries for all his procedures, including gastric balloon. Mi Doctor Hospital (Family Doctor Hospital) is a friendly environment for patients and their companions with specialized care for them.
Using a specialized center results in reduced risk and complication rate, and better outcome. MBC is the first and only company that keeps the patients overnight after the balloon implantation.
