Spatz Balloon Frequently Asked Questions:


How long do you keep the Spatz3 intragastric balloon in the stomach?

The FDA approved the Spatz3 intragastric balloon to be kept in the stomach for a total of 8 months. This ensures weight loss occurs safely and avoids adverse events.


How does the Spatz gastric balloon surgery help you lose weight?

The Spatz gastric balloon system is a minimally invasive procedure that aids in weight loss by temporarily reducing the stomach’s capacity. A deflated gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach and then inflated with saline, occupying space and creating a feeling of fullness. This helps patients consume smaller portions of food, leading to reduced calorie intake. The endoscopic procedure typically lasts about 10-15 minutes and can be adjusted as needed to optimize results. It’s a safe and effective option for individuals seeking to jumpstart their weight loss journey without surgery or drastic lifestyle changes.


Is the Spatz gastric balloon covered by insurance?

Although the gastric balloon weight loss is significant, and although the health benefits of the Spatz gastric balloon are proven, these weight loss procedures are not covered by insurance at this point.
