Despite lifestyle modification and weight-loss programs, the obesity epidemic is on the rise. A variety of new laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques exist to aid in the weight loss process, with some of the newest advances in intra gastric balloons. In this case report, we aim to answer the question of whether the Air-filled Gastric Balloon System can act as a bridge to definitive bariatric surgery, as an off-label use, in patients with a BMI greater than 65 kg/m2 .
