Spatz3 is a type of gastric balloon device used in the treatment of obesity. It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure where a silicone balloon is inflated in the stomach to create a feeling of fullness and reduce food intake. The device is temporary, typically remaining in place for up to 12 months. It is designed to be a tool for weight loss in conjunction with a comprehensive weight management program that includes lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise. The Spatz3 device is intended for use in individuals with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher.
