How it works
Spatz3 is the Only Adjustable
Gastric Balloon system
How does an adjustable gastric balloon work?
The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon is inserted during an outpatient procedure that takes about 15 minutes. No incisions or hospitalization are required. It is a walk-in, walk-out procedure.a
The Spatz3 occupies approximately one-third of the stomach’s volume. This causes the stomach to empty very slowly, keeping food in longer than usual. The food builds up over time which produces signals that alert the patient that there is an abundance of food in the stomach.
The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon
offers the highest weight loss success rates.
Increasing the volume of the balloon, which is done between the 4th and 6th month, is designed to extend the treatment process and achieve better and extended weight loss results.
Published studies report that balloon efficiency diminishes after 3 months (on average) and patients start to regain weight.
Spatz3 patients can have the balloon volume increased, when needed, to help prevent weight regain and to achieve the industry’s highest weight loss results.
It is known that approximately 10% of gastric balloon patients face early extraction due to intolerance.
Decreasing the volume of the balloon helps patients deal with intolerance.
The Spatz3 alleviates this intolerance and successfully reduces the rate of early extractions by 90%.
