Good evening! In the Severance clinic itself, I liked everything. Everything is very organized. Polite clinic staff. There was one caveat. Nobody told me that preparations for a colonoscopy will be delivered to the hotel. If I hadn’t come to Severance hospital the day before, I’ve found a girl who speaks Russian. She phoned the clinic and explained that the package should wait at the hotel. A. So I would not be prepared on the appointed day. The rest I liked everything. I plan to come to you in a year. Thanks for all !! Добрый вечер! В самой клинике Северанс мне все понравилось. Очень все организовано. Вежливый персонал клиники . Был один нюанс. Мне никто не сообщил что будут доставлены препараты для колоноскопия в отель. Если бы я днём раньше не пришла в госпиталь Северанс где нашла девушку говорящую на русском языке. Она созвонилась с клиникой и объяснила что должна ждать в отеле посылочка. А. Так бы я пришла в назначенный день не подготовленная. Остальное мне все понравилось. Планирую через год к вам. Спасибо за все !!

The patient was treated of obesity

My visit was not so perfect, they were not so professional as I wish. The doctor was good but we have large problems with communication and I feel how he felt uncomfortable about it but cannot do anything with it. That is why I denied to do the operation there and only have a consultation They do not know that I do not speak German but only English I want to say thank you to Lesya, her job was good.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I came to the clinic for a consultation with a gynecologist. I was greeted by friendly and polite staff at the reception, and then I was consulted by an arach gynecologist, who told and showed my problem and the ways of its treatment in detail. It seemed that all the staff at the clinic only wanted me to get better as soon as possible .... Thank you all for your kindness and attention !!! Tatiana Chekhova. В клинику я приехала на консультацию к гинекологу. Встретили меня доброжелательные и вежливые сотрудники на ресепшене.Потом провела консультацию арач гинеколог,которая подробнейшим образом рассказала и показала мою проблему и пути её лечения. Казалось, что все сотрудники клиники только и хотят,чтобы я скорейшим образом поправилась....Спасибо всем за доброту и внимание!!! Татьяна Чехова.

Diagnostics is at the level, but you will not receive a conclusion and diagnosis, there will also be problems with translation into Russian, you will not wait for them. The clinic is not interested in treating you, it is possible to operate, there is no medication. Диагностика на уровне, но вы не получите заключения и диагноза, с переводом на русский язык так же будут проблемы, вы их не дождётесь. Клиника не заинтересована вас лечить, оперировать возможно, медикаментозно нет.

Good afternoon! It was well received, everything was promptly organized by the coordinators. But there was a misunderstanding that the second opinion of the Doctor was not officially heard, but verbally through the coordinators. At my request to provide an official opinion, I was sent in Italian, I would still like to receive a report at least in English, since the clinic is positioning itself international. Добрый день! Приняли хорошо , все было оперативно организованно со стороны координаторов . Но Произошло недоразумение , Что второе мнение Доктора прозвучало не официально, а вербально через координаторов . На мою просьбу предоставить официальное заключение , мне его выслали на итальянском языке , хотелось бы все таки получить отчёт минимум как на англ языке , раз клиника позиционирует себя международной .

Questions and answers

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric or intragastric balloon is a short-term medical device aimed to help patients lose excess weight without surgical intervention. It is temporary, but enough effective method to get rid of obesity along with diet and physical activity.

How does gastric balloon work?

A soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope (tubular instrument passed through the mouth and throat). In the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline occupying the bigger part of the intragastric space. This gives the impression of satiety because the stomach is partially full. As a result, the individual eats less food in one sitting and begins to lose weight.

The balloon is situated in the stomach for 6 months, after which it is removed. It can be inserted for a second time after a break of 2 months. To achieve the maximum effect of this bariatric procedure, the patient needs to keep a diet.

The balloon insertion takes an hour. The procedure requires hospitalization — the patient stays in a hospital for a day and then comes back home. 

Who benefits the gastric balloon procedure?

This method is not suitable for people with a very high body mass index (BMI). The recommended BMI for an intragastric balloon procedure starts from 30.

An intragastric balloon can also be used as a preparation for bariatric surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Some weight loss surgeries increase the risk of complications if the patient has severe obesity. In this case, the balloon can reduce excess weight to acceptable standards that allow doctors to perform bariatric surgery with less risk.

The balloon bariatric procedure is especially suitable for people who want to avoid surgery.

What are the main advantages of the gastric balloon method ?

  • installed through an endoscope without intervention
  • temporary option (6 months)
  • can be reused
  • can be used as preparation for bariatric surgery
  • low risk of complications
  • does not affect the digestive system
  • weight loss is slower than after bariatric surgery.

What are the contraindications for the procedure?

  • inflammatory bowel disease 
  • esophagitis
  • gastric and duodenal ulcers
  • stomach tumors
  • lower gastrointestinal bleeding
  • congenital pyloric stenosis, atresia, and stenosis of the small intestine
  • large hiatal hernia (esophageal opening of the diaphragm)
  • mental disorders
  • alcohol and drug addiction
  • constant intake of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, drugs that irritate the stomach, anticoagulants (medications that reduce blood clotting)
  • pregnancy or breastfeeding.

 

Learn more about the contraindications here.

How long is the rehabilitation period after intragastric balloon insertion?

The recovery time takes 3 days. After this period, the patient can return to work. Immediately after the gastric balloon procedure, the patient will need to limit food intake. During the first few days, the diet should consist only of liquid food. In 2 weeks after the procedure, the person can begin to try semi-solid, and then solid food.

The intragastric balloon implies that the patient will change the lifestyle and eating habits to healthier ones. The balloon makes it much easier because it consumes a lot of space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food intake.

The procedure for intragastric balloon installing also involves checks by a surgeon to avoid all sorts of complications.

In 6 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was installed. If the patient wants the process to be repeated to achieve a better result, then the balloon can be inserted again after a short break of 2 months.

What are the risks of the gastric balloon?

The intragastric balloon procedure causes fewer complications in contrast with other weight loss surgery methods. The most common among them are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain.

What results can you expect after the procedure?

The gastric juice destroys the balloon gradually, so the balloon can be put into the stomach for 6 months, and then it must be taken out. If a patient wants to continue balloon treatment, the procedure will be performed again but only in 2 months.

The procedure's effectiveness depends on the eating habits and the patient’s diet. The gastric balloon shows high efficiency in people with not very high BMI, in particular:

  • lose about 20-50 pounds of excess weight
  • decrease body weight by 20%
  • decrease body mass index by 5%.

How much does a gastric balloon cost ?

Usually, the stomach balloon surgery cost includes consultation with a doctor and the procedure itself. In some clinics balloon packages and programs are available.

The balloon weight loss surgery cost varies depending on:

  • country

Each country offers different prices for the procedure. It depends on state economic development level and average price policy. Asian nations offer 3-4 times lower bariatric balloon cost in comparison with European ones.

  • city

The price for gastric balloon differs from city to city within a particular country. Larger and more economically developed megapolises offer 2 times higher balloon weight loss surgery cost than the smaller cities. However, the quality of the procedure is on the same level.

  • private or state hospital

Clinics are divided into private and state ones. The bariatric balloon cost in state hospitals can be 2 times lower than in private clinics. But the management quality in state centers is also lower. It depends on the country where a hospital is located. Specify the information on at the clinic contact center and read gastric balloon surgery reviews when choosing a hospital.

  • doctor’s qualification

The best bariatric doctors undergo international training and have vast experience. The balloon weight loss surgery cost is higher when a specialist with an excellent reputation performs the procedure.
