Orbera Weight Loss

Dr. David Johnson is pleased to offer a new and advanced weight loss option called ORBERA®! ORBERA® is a two-part weight loss program designed to help you to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Long-lasting weight loss and overall health is much more achievable with ORBERA®'s gastric balloon technology, healthy diet, personalized exercise plan, support team and access to an available online after-care program. It has been shown that patients can lose up to 3x the weight with ORBERA®'s weight loss system than with just diet and exercise alone.


The deflated gastric balloon is inserted through your mouth, eliminating the need for incisions or stitches and the scars they leave behind. After the stomach balloon is inserted through the esophagus and properly into the stomach it's filled with a safe saline solution. When the ORBERA® stomach balloon is filled completely it is about the size of a grapefruit and moves freely around the stomach.


ORBERA® is FDA-approved and the #1 weight loss balloon in the world. Over the last 20 years ORBERA® stomach balloons have helped over 220,000 people. The gastric balloon encourages portion control while you make healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle.


The ORBERA® weight loss system is much more than just a gastric balloon. It's a program that helps you to change your lifestyle, not only physically but mentally too. A healthy mindset is the key to achieving your weight loss goals and maintaining a new lifestyle. ORBERA® makes this possible through a support team that may include dietitians, psychologists and exercise psychologists.
