Dr. Kirk Moore Answers your ORBERA® Questions
Dr. Kirk Moore: All right, what is Orbera? Orbera is a balloon that we put inside the stomach. It takes some space up inside the stomach. It just controls your portions. It's not painful. Recovery time is pretty straightforward. You have a clear liquid diet, or liquid diet for seven to 10 days. There's some nausea that's manageable with medications. Weight loss is at least 30% more with the Orbera balloon than it is with diet and exercise alone.
