THE BMI CLINIC
Formerly known as Gastric Balloon Australia, The BMI Clinic team specialise in non-surgical and surgical weight loss techniques. Our Sydney clinic, established in 2005, is the largest specialist practice of its kind in Australia. Our specialist doctors are world leaders in endoscopic management of weight loss and are regularly called upon to train other medical specialists in the use of intragastric balloon systems, along with newer techniques such as the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG). The BMI team recognises that there is no one-size-fits-all approach in weight loss and as such we regularly utilise a number of different techniques, including:
- Intragastric Balloon (Orbera® & Spatz3®)
- Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)
- Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass
- Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve
- Aspire Assist®
To maximise your weight loss, all of our programs include a personalised lifestyle retraining program, supervised by your doctor and a team of clinical experts including nurses, dietitian and, psychologists who work together with you to help achieve your weight loss goals.
With programs starting from $5,150, a gastric balloon is an affordable weight loss option for most patients.
Over the past 12 years we have assisted thousands of people lose an average of 10-30kg with a gastric balloon.
Placement (and removal) of the intragastric balloon takes approximately 20 minutes in a day clinic and does not involve surgery - it is considered to be a minimally invasive procedure.
The Intra Gastric Balloon remains in the stomach for a period of up to 12 months and is then removed in the same way it was placed.
