Who is Spatz3 Balloon for?

Spatz3 balloon is suited best for patients suffering from obesity who were not able to achieve their goals with diet and exercise alone. Spatz3 is ideal for patients who want a reversible tool to help kick-start their weight loss journey.

Am I a candidate for Spatz3?

We currently offer Spatz3 balloon through a post-approval clinical study. Our team will determine whether you are eligible for Spatz3 balloon placement after an initial assessment. You may be a candidate for Spatz3 balloon if your BMI is between 35 and 40 or if your BMI is between 30 and 35 and you have one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions.

How does Spatz3 balloon work?

The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon is inserted during a 15-minute non-invasive outpatient procedure. No incisions or hospitalization is required. It is a walk-in, walk-out weight loss procedure. Spatz3 is the only adjustable gastric balloon on the market, helping our patients achieve more effective weight loss results. This allows patients to learn how to read their body’s signals and develop healthier eating habits that maintain weight loss after the balloon is removed.
