Reading Time: 2 minutes

Although you may not yet be familiar with gastric balloons, over the past 30 years, more than 200,000 people all over the world have lost weight with the assistance of gastric balloons, a non-surgical alternative to weight loss surgery.

If you’ve been looking for a safe, non-surgical method to kick-start your weight loss and regain a healthy lifestyle, take a look at the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon – an effective, safer and less costly alternative to weight loss surgery for individuals who are overweight or obese.

Unlike other gastric balloons on the market, the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is safe enough to be used for a full year. That’s twice the length of time for which other gastric balloons are approved. Additionally, as your body gets used to any gastric balloon, its effectiveness diminishes. The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is uniquely adjustable, which means that your physician can boost your weight loss when necessary with a simple, outpatient adjustment of the balloon’s volume.

Over 5,000 patients worldwide have lost an average of 25 kg using the Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon. In a recent study, more than 76% of patients maintained a medically significant amount of weight loss two years after the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon was removed. Contrast that to standard 6 month balloons that report 25% of their patients maintain medically significant weight loss two and a half years after balloon removal.

Care in Israel is now being provided by Dr. Jeffrey Brooks, a US board-certified and Israel certified gastroenterologist with 25 years of clinical experience. Dr. Brooks is the inventor of the innovative Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon and he has taught hundreds of doctors all over the world how to help patients lose weight using the balloon he invented. Now, Dr. Brooks is available to work with you privately.

Prices start at 24,000 NIS (including VAT), which includes the implantation, adjustment and removal procedures all under the sedation of an anesthesiologist, a full year of care and unlimited follow up with Dr. Brooks. Procedures are 15 minutes long with a 45 minute recovery before discharge home. The outpatient procedures are currently being performed in Jerusalem and Herzliya.
