A gastric balloon is a minimally invasive, non-surgical tool used in the treatment of obesity. For patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) score over 27, a gastric balloon may help achieve long-term weight loss, and the management of other medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. The gastric balloon procedure may be particularly useful for people considered too overweight to undergo vital surgery.

The unique Spatz3 Gastric Balloon allows both adjustment of the balloon volume as well as longer implantation time – features that are unavailable with any other Gastric balloon on the market.
