Swallowable gastric balloon is a new generation gastric balloon that is ingested with water without the need for surgical procedures, endoscopy and anesthesia. The swallowable gastric balloon works with the same logic as other gastric balloons, but is much more advantageous.
The swallowable gastric balloon is administered without endoscopy. Therefore, anesthesia is not needed. The patient swallows the gastric balloon under the supervision of a specialist physician and after swallowing it, the balloon is inflated in the stomach.
As with classic gastric balloons, the swallowable gastric balloon fills a significant portion of the stomach volume and allows the patient to get enough quickly during meals. The swallowable gastric balloon provides the person with a feeling of satiety, thus preventing the person from getting hungry quickly. It allows nutrients to be digested more slowly, as it fills the stomach volume. Swallowable gastric balloon is the ideal method that does not require operation.
When performing an swallowable gastric balloon operation;
The swallowable gastric balloon has been safely administered by specialist physicians in Casac Clinics for a long time. The swallowable gastric balloon is applied without the need for anesthesia and endoscopy. The patient, who is asked to go hungry the night before, swallows the balloon in the form of a small pill in the clinic. The balloon, which is ingested with the help of a specialist, is inflated by the physician when it reaches the stomach, and then the patient lung film is taken to confirm that the procedure was performed successfully. This whole process takes only 5 minutes.
At Casac Clinics, smart scales and smartwatches are given to every patient who performs swallowable gastric balloon procedures. Patients are constantly supported by the mobile Application. The swallowable gastric balloon remains in the stomach for an average of 16 weeks and is spontaneously excreted from the stomach by natural means. It is ensured that each patient gives an average of 15kg in 4 months, provided that it is proportional to the body structure.
