How do you remove a gastric balloon?

Removing a gastric balloon involves a simple endoscopic procedure with sedation.  You will be breathing on your own, but the sedation drugs will make sure you are not feeling any pain and are not aware of what is going on.

It’s important to take some steps to make sure there is no solid food present in your stomach that could lead to aspiration into your lungs at the time of removal.  If you do not follow these steps, we may be unable to remove your balloon(s) which means we would have to do another removal procedure after your stomach is emptied.
