Our Non-Surgical Treatments

At QMC, we also provide non-surgical weight loss treatments, particularly gastric balloon surgery in Kuwait.

Balloon Therapy is a non-surgical procedure performed either endoscopically or by swallowing a pill.

It is indicated for those who are obese or overweight and have failed dieting attempts, patients who do not want bariatric surgery, or patients who are unfit for surgery.


An intra-gastric balloon is a soft, water-filled balloon that partially fills the stomach. It causes early satiety, which restricts food intake, and slows down the emptying of the stomach, which causes fullness to last longer.

The most widely used intra-gastric balloons are:

  • Orbera Intragastric Balloon

A soft silicone balloon filled with saline, placed via endoscopy, promoting fullness for portion control.

  • Obalon Balloon System

Swallowed gas-filled balloons over weeks, stay for 6 months, aid portion control, lifestyle changes.

  • ReShape Duo Balloon

Two balloons connected via endoscopy, filled with saline, reduce stomach capacity for weight loss.

  • Elipse Gastric Balloon

Swallowed in capsule, remote inflation, deflates naturally in 4 months, no endoscopy for placement/removal.
