The gastric balloon procedure is a life-changing experience, and part of the journey is a commitment to a comprehensive coaching program customized by community partners provided by Gastroenterology Associates. To ensure our patients are receiving the optimal results from the gastric balloon procedure, they will meet monthly with a professional who specializes in dietary and/or exercise programs. These community partners will provide a comprehensive program to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
This program will provide patients with tools and information to help reduce total calorie intake, and eat smaller amounts of food and exercise regularly. It is important to follow the diet and exercise advice provided for the full 12 months to reach the ideal weight loss.
