Success Stories

The #1 gastric balloon delivering the Highest Success Rates

While standard balloons may need to be removed due to intolerance, the Spatz3 is volume-adjusted extending the treatment process to yield the most successful weight loss results. When balloons lose their effect after 3-4 months, only an adjustable balloon can have the balloon enlarged to renew the balloon effect.

The Spatz3 is the only flexible treatment tailored to the patients' clinical needs.

“I have lost 41 kg (92 lbs) over 12 months with the Spatz balloon. Here is my story:

Weight loss has always been a challenge for me. I have tried it all. You know what I’m talking about – diet, exercise and pills. It either doesn’t work or it doesn’t last. Even if I followed the diet carefully – it was so difficult, and eventually I failed. I knew that I needed help in controlling my appetite – but diet pills don’t work so well. When I heard about the success of balloons, I was very interested to see if it would work for me. They were testing a new adjustable balloon at the university hospital near my home. My doctor suggested that I try it.The first few days weren’t as bad as I expected. There was nausea and vomiting, but I managed to get through it. After that, it was much better. My appetite was reduced and I lost weight steadily. After about 4 1/2 months my appetite started to come back. My doctor recommended adding more fluid to the balloon. I went back to the hospital for a quick procedure. Since then I lost another 15 kg.

My life has changed. I am so happy with the results so far. I feel so proud when my friends tell me that I look great. My clothing became so loose that I had to go out and buy all new stuff. Most important of all, I feel great.”

3 year follow up: “I am doing great. I lost another 7 kg since my balloon was removed. That 1 year of balloon treatment really helped me change my eating habits.”

Using the Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon, Eli has lost over 34 kg!

“After years of dieting, weight gain and weight loss, for the first time at age 44, I reached the right, healthy and necessary weight by medical standards. I keep telling anyone who asks me that the balloon is the most beautiful gift I could buy for myself” Eli decided to transform his life, but he was aware that he would need to be consistent with his new plan in order to truly lose weight. “The balloon did not work alone and as Dr. Brooks told me when we first met, I had to work with the balloon and so I did. I started training from the first week of transplant until today. I consulted with a dietitian once a week and also contacted emotional therapy. The balloon was the main tool that helped my motivation to make change but change is in every area of life” “I feel like I was reborn and thank God and Dr. Brooks for the opportunity given to me and my family for a healthier and better life”

Michal lost 30 kg (66lbs) within 11 months.

After I tried everything, from pills, diet plans, weight watchers and all sorts of methods, I understood I needed something more. After I read about it, I decided to go for it! The process was amazing. To my surprise, the balloon implantation was very short, within 10 to 15 minutes it was done. It’s true that the first 4 days I felt weak, I’m not the kind of person that returned to work the day after. Besides the fact that the treatment process was a good challenge to myself, it was nice seeing myself lose weight on a weekly basis. It was relatively easy, amazing and I simply received “me” back to myself. The New Michal.
