We are excited to say that the Orbera Balloon Dr. McEwen offers won the 2016 “Most Worth It” award in the bariatric category. The Orbera is a relatively new weight-loss option that involves a silicon balloon filled with saline being placed endoscopically into the stomach – no incisions required! The balloon helps reduce hunger and a 6 month diet-centered program is utilized along-side the balloon to help patients make long-term lifestyle and diet changes. It is not, however, covered by insurance at this point.
“The 2016 Most Worth It Award recipients offer some of the most innovative treatments available, and the winners are determined by the percentage of consumers who rated the treatment as “Worth It” (in its respective category) in 2016. A confidence interval is applied to balance the proportion of positive ratings relative to the number of reviews that a treatment received.”
Dr. McEwen believes in providing his patients with quality care and up-to-date medical technology. The Orbera Balloon is proving to be a great option to kick-start weight loss and a perfect springboard into a more fulfilled lifestyle centered on health and wellness.
