We look forward to helping you lose weight using gastric balloon in the future. Our gastroenterology department with Mr. Nachtigall now also offers the possibility of having a gastric balloon placed under sedation. Together with detailed nutritional counseling from our partner MyWeigh, this will enable you to lose a significant amount of weight in the following 12 months. Concomitant diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and joint problems can be significantly improved as a result. Gastric ballooning is recommended when conservative dietary measures have repeatedly failed to achieve success and a BMI greater than 28 is present. The treatment costs are currently not covered by any health insurance and must be provided as self-pay.
