My son had a gastric sleeve in Delhi last September 2017. A year later my son is a different young man. Our reason for traveling from Australia was his age is 14. You saved my son's life and I will be forever grateful for that, the care and service were immaculate. yes, it can be a culture shock, in another country. But it, not any less of what we would have received here.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
One thing that stood out for me, as long as the hospital and the service in the US were compared to the hospital here, it's better here. And working with IndiCure was that the service was amazing!"

Gastric balloon procedure, also known as Endoscopic Intra-gastric balloon is a non invasive procedure and thus not a surgery. It involves insertion of a specialized sterile balloon through an endoscopy without involving any incisions.
The procedure is not painful, though you may have some discomfort, uneasiness, or nausea for a couple of days which can be controlled with drugs.
Gastric Balloon procedure is completely safe if performed by an experienced and well-trained bariatric surgeon in a well-equipped surgical facility.
The possible risks of Gastric Balloon are:
With the advancement in technology and the use of the best quality balloons, though highly unlikely, there is a possibility of balloon rupture. Thus as a precaution, a safe and non-toxic blue methylene dye is added to the balloon when it is filled at the time of placement. In case your urine turns green anytime your balloon is in place, it would indicate a rupture and the balloon would be removed immediately.
Gastric Ballooning is absolutely worth it if you are ready to change and maintain your lifestyle. The procedure greatly helps you in this lifestyle change as you feel full after having much smaller portions, your appetite is reduced and you remain full for longer periods. You are also advised to exercise regularly along with dietary changes.
