Dr Tulip's Obesity and Diabetes Surgery Hospital Bangalore provides Swallow balloon capsules / pills in Bangalore. Swallow Balloon technology is from Allurion Technologies USA. It induces weight loss by making you feel full / less hungry and early satiety. It is actually a gastric balloon in the form of a capsule which needs to be swallowed. This means no endoscopy and no anaesthesia. Once this swallow balloon pill/ capsule enters the stomach, its position needs to be confirmed by fluoroscopy. This means it is not a home procedure, but needs medical supervision although it may not require hospital admission.
