Grow Your Practice With the ReShape Balloon Program
For Patients with a BMI of 30-40*
With the ReShape BalloonTM Program, you can provide significant weight loss without surgery. A recent survey showed that the majority of mild to moderately obese people in the United States have considered weight loss surgery but are ultimately unwilling to take that step.1 The ReShape Balloon enables you the ability to offer a cash-pay medical intervention option to an entirely new lower BMI patient population that’s actively looking for a solution.
Millions of People Are Ready For Change
Give Them a Chance with the ReShape Balloon Program
In the US, it is estimated that there are over 60 million people with mild to moderate (Grade 1 and Grade 2) obesity.1 Many of them have tried traditional weight loss methods, and are frustrated with the lack of results. They’re looking for a better solution, but they aren’t ready for surgery.2
With the ReShape Balloon Program, you have the opportunity to address a huge unmet need in weight loss, and to help thousands of people in your community achieve life-changing weight loss without surgery.

The ReShape Balloon Program was designed for patients who meet the following requirements:
- BMI between 30 and 40 with a co-morbidity
- No previous weight loss surgery

With the ReShape Balloon Program, you now have an option that can attract the mild to moderately obese in your community.

The Power of Patient Referrals
A major source of new patients is often word-of-mouth referrals. Successful patients spreading the word about their great experience can drive a steady stream of new patients.
In a follow-up survey to the US pivotal trial,
3 out of 4
patients said they would recommend the ReShape Balloon to a friend.
