American Bariatric Surgery Society OKs Intragastric Balloons


The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) has just added intragastric balloons to its list of devices and procedures that it endorses. The procedure, in which a balloon is inserted into the stomach and filled with liquid or air, helps obese patients feel full sooner. The device is removed 6 months later.
