Iowa Weight Loss Specialists offers both surgical weight loss and medical weight loss (non-surgical) options. Both weight loss programs aim to reduce the health risks associated with excess weight. Healthy weight loss can help cut medical costs, reduce joint pain, and help you live a longer life. Both surgical weight loss and non-surgical weight loss programs are covered by insurance, and we do not charge a program fee.
Iowa Weight Loss Specialists take on a holistic approach to weight loss. We work to not only help you lose weight but to keep the weight off for good. With wellness coaching, behavioral health support, and more, we provide the tools and support patients need to achieve their weight loss goals.
We are now offering Telemedicine Consultations!
The decision to have weight loss surgery is important and requires a long-term commitment by both you and your surgical team. The Gastric Sleeve procedure is one of the most common weight loss surgeries performed in the United States. Bariatric surgery involves removing approximately 75% of the stomach, leaving it in the shape of a sleeve.
Bariatric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss by decreasing hunger and restricting food intake. After surgery, your bariatric surgeon and support team will provide you with additional resources to help you keep the weight off. If you’re considering surgery for losing weight, our free weight loss class is the best place to start!
Medical weight loss is our non-surgical weight loss program led by a team of Nurse Practitioners. Your medical weight management team will work with you to create a personalized plan to meet your specific weight loss goals. Our weight loss team monitors your weight-related medical conditions and works with your family doctor to develop a weight loss plan.
By using a real-food approach, we will work with you to come up with a sustainable eating plan that is right for you. We have access to a variety of tools to monitor and track your progress. Appetite suppressing medications can also be used as a tool to aid in your weight loss.
At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we want to help you make life-long changes. We believe in a real food approach, teaching you to make healthy food choices for a lifetime, not just for a few weeks or months. While fad diets may lead to weight loss, it is often very difficult to maintain. Changing your lifestyle is the best way to lose weight and keep it off. We believe that long-lasting results are achieved by making small changes over time, and we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.
