Balloon Research Study


See If You Qualify

Are you at least 50 pounds overweight and at least 22 years of age?

If you have NOT had prior weight loss surgery and are considering a stomach balloon as a weight loss option, you may be eligible to participate in a research study. Dr. Julie Ellner is an investigator in a 1 year observational study on the performance of the ORBERA balloon for reducing weight and inches when used in combination with a diet and lifestyle modification program.

Contact 619-286-7866 to schedule an initial appointment to discuss if ORBERA is the right option for you. The research study and compensation will be discussed with all potential participants.

Note that the Orbera balloon is already proven to be successful. This study is designed to bring even more data to the existing research, proving loss of weight and inches for people who get the balloon.

There is a limited number of people who can participate in the study, so call right away if you're interested. 619-286-7866.
