Our expert says:
The insertion of an intragastric balloon into the stomach to reduce uptake of food and cause weightloss, is a bariatric procedure, so I would recommend that you contact the Centres of Excellence in regard to having this procedure to assist weightloss. Contact the Call Centre of the Netcare Bariatric Centres of Excellence on 0861-623-7489 or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their Website at www.netcare.co.za to discuss this option, the potential costs and any associated problems.
