The ReShape™ dual-intragastric balloon is endoscopically placed down the esophagus and into the stomach, with a procedure that does not require any incisions, sutures or fixation to the body. The ReShape™ balloon occupies existing space in the stomach for six months, serving as built-in portion control so patients may feel full and satisfied with less food. The device does not change or alter the patient’s anatomy. During the journey, patients work with dieticians, doctors and nurses to learn healthy diet and exercise habits to help them beyond the treatment period.
Why a dual-balloon?
- Weight loss: Filled with an evenly distributed 900cc of saline to occupy more volume than the 400-700 typical of single balloons, without over-distending the stomach
- Tolerability: Designed to conform better to the stomach’s natural curvature than a single balloon for improved tolerability
- Safety: Dual-balloon design mitigates risk of migration and obstruction
