SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- True Results, a leading provider of bariatric weight loss solutions, announced that it has completed the first three ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon procedures in San Antonio on September 24, 2015.  The procedures were performed at the Turning Point Specialty Surgery Center by True Results affiliated surgeons Dr. J. Keith Wright and Dr. Gerardo E. Carcamo.

When asked about her weight struggles, Kim, a working mom from San Antonio, said, "I'm excited to be the very first patient in San Antonio to get the ORBERA™ balloon.  I've been struggling with my weight for over 20 years.  It's important for me to lose the weight because there are many health issues that run in my family like diabetes and high blood pressure.  More importantly, I want to be a good mother for my 21-month old daughter.  She's very energetic and I want to be able to keep up with her."

Kim continued, "Though I've tried many diet and exercise plans, they just didn't work for me.  When I heard about the ORBERA™ balloon, I was very excited.  The six month program will help me retrain the way I think about food and the way I eat.  It's just what I need to get the weight off and keep it off."

"We are excited today to be offering the first ORBERA™ balloons to patients in San Antonio," said expert weight loss surgeon J. Keith Wright, M.D. "This is a new FDA-approved procedure that is ideal for patients who may not have as much weight to lose or patients who are unwilling or nervous about a more invasive surgery." 

Dr. Wright continued, "The ORBERA™ balloon is placed endoscopically, without any surgical incisions, inside the stomach.  It occupies space and allows patients to feel satisfied with less food.  The balloon is meant to stay in the stomach for six months at which time it is removed."

"We are very proud at True Results to now offer this great weight loss option to patients in San Antonio," said Gerardo E. Carcamo, M.D.  "The ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon procedure is non-surgical and fully reversible.  It will help patients decrease the volume of food they eat so they can lose weight quickly.  The ORBERA™ balloon has helped over 220,000 patients worldwide over the last 20 years and was recently approved by the FDA for patients in the U.S."
