We understand that our patients need a
custom-fit for their gastric balloons.

So we invented it.

The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon
is the gastric balloon of the future.


At Spatz Medical, we understand that one balloon
volume will not be maximally effective, since most gastric balloons
lose their impact within 2-4 months.


The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon can be enlarged
when needed and kept in for 12 full months.


A standard balloon size may be too large for you,
requiring early extraction.


The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon can be made
smaller when needed.


With non-adjustable balloons, your doctor gets
only one shot at setting the balloons volume.


The Spatz3 Adjustable Gastric Balloon can be adjusted
multiple times to enhance your progress.

Only one balloon in the world can be adjusted as needed.
The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is THE OBVIOUS CHOICE.

Adjustability sets the Spatz3 gastric balloon apart from all other balloons.

Simply keeping a gastric balloon in your stomach longer without adjusting its size won’t make it work longer than 2-4 months.
10-20% of patients have their balloons removed early because they are too big. Only the Spatz3 balloon can be made smaller, saving you from disappointment and wasted investment.
Periodic adjustments rejuvenate the Spatz3 balloon to prevent weight regain and yield additional weight loss. No other gastric balloon can do that.
The Spatz3 adjustable gastric balloon is THE OBVIOUS CHOICE.

How is the Spatz3 balloon superior to other gastric balloons?

Over 300,000 individuals have chosen gastric balloons as an alternative to weight loss surgery, diets, pills and other weight loss programs that haven’t yielded the results they desire…The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon has two main advantages over the typical gastric balloon.

The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is safe enough to be used for a full year. Thats twice the length of time for which other gastric balloons are approved.

As your body gets used to any gastric balloon, its effectiveness diminishes. This generally happens 3 to 4 months after implantation. 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 balloons volume.

Can I afford it?

This is a decision only you can make. Your physician will discuss the cost of full treatment, including the procedures, screening tests, follow up visits, nutritional and behavior modification consultations.

As you are making your decision, remember to factor in the potential healthcare cost savings you will realize when your overall health improves as a result of weight loss. Studies in the US have shown the average annual cost of obesity to be over $15,000 per year.
