While we can go on and on about the benefits of the Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon when compared to the competition, there’s nothing like hearing it from the unbiased professionals who deal with gastric balloons on a daily basis. With over 70,000 gastric balloon implantations worldwide, we’d like to share what our Spatz certified doctors have been raving about!
John Mason MD
“I have been quite satisfied with the Spatz Adjustable Balloon, but, I recently tried the new Spatz3 balloon and was happy to see several improvements. It is now even easier to insert using their new insertion facilitator, and the new valve has grasping areas that make it easier to grasp for adjustment procedures.”
Evžen Machytka, M.D. PhD.
“I have implanted hundreds of intragastric balloons – all the varieties available – and have found that significant weight loss occurs in the first 3 months, with little effect in the remainder of the 6 month implantation period. Approximately 7% of patients are intolerant and have their balloons removed within the first 2 weeks. This has been published in the literature.
The Spatz balloon is the first to offer easy balloon volume adjustments after the initial implantation. I have adjusted the balloon volume successfully in my patients:
Several for early intolerance – they now are more comfortable and continue to lose weight. With other balloons, we would have had no choice, but to remove them.
Many for diminished weight loss after 3 months. They had a new burst of weight loss at 3 months, which I have not seen with other balloons.
My patients have always asked to keep their balloon in longer than 6 months. Now I can provide a 1 year balloon. Our 12 month results and those of our colleagues in Spain have revealed weight losses of almost 30 kg on average.
Patients with other balloons are already regaining some weight 6 months after removal of their balloons – so that at 1 year Spatz balloon patients have more than double the weight loss compared with other balloons.”
Dr. Manny Srivastava MD FRCP
“I have switched to the Spatz balloon for the added benefits of adjustability and 1 year long implantation. One of my patients experienced daily vomiting for 6 months with another intragastric balloon. With the Spatz balloon we were able to adjust the balloon volume to her comfort level.”
