The Obalon Swallowable Gastric Balloon is an innovative new, gas-filled balloon that the patient can swallow in the physician’s office.  The early results indicate that Obalon may have the lowest complication rate of all intra-gastric balloons available in the United States.  A total of three balloons are inserted in the patient’s stomach over time, and no downtime is required after placement.
