Thank you for your interest in a San Diego gastric balloon procedure at Olde Del Mar Surgical.
The gastric balloon procedure is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We’ve found it to be one of the most common and effective methods of bariatric procedures available today.
Our San Diego bariatric surgery and general surgery team has conducted gastric balloon procedures for many years. We are proud and honored to be consistently regarded as one of the most trusted clinics nationwide for this and other weight-loss procedures.
San Diego Gastric Balloon
The gastric balloon is a nonsurgical and noninvasive method that works especially well for people who either do not qualify for surgery or are in no need of surgery.
Many professionals view gastric ballooning as a tool to help patients stick to their diets more effectively. In some cases, patients who undergo gastric ballooning lose up to three times the amount of weight than they ever could with diet and exercise alone.
The balloon itself is designed to be convenient and comfortable for the patient. One of the many pros of this procedure is that for many patients, it ensures that there are no dramatic changes to their lifestyles or schedules.
At Olde Del Mar Surgical, we understand how difficult today’s busy lifestyles can be for the average family. Finding time to do the right thing for one’s health can be a challenge. How many hours in the day are already devoted to other things? And then we are encouraged to find additional time to exercise and practice healthy eating habits!
Certainly, these changes are achievable, but they do require a substantial adjustment to one’s schedule and a substantial commitment to the project of self.
Bariatric surgery is no shortcut, however. As Chief of Surgery Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul reminds us, a weight-loss procedure is only an early step on the road to health and wellness. It requires follow-up care on our part — and follow-through on the part of the patient.
But when those steps are taken, the results can be tremendous, as our patients who have achieved significant weight loss can attest.
At Olde Del Mar Surgical, we help our patients lose weight and achieve post-procedure results that they can count on for the long term. We’re committed to helping our patients make the most of their San Diego gastric balloon procedure. We will provide them with all the knowledge, expertise, and friendly advice that they’ll need as they and our staff work through the process together.
