For those who have had difficulty losing weight and keeping it off, Iowa Weight Loss Specialists offers both medical weight loss (non-surgical) and surgical weight loss options. Both accredited weight loss programs aim to reduce the health risks associated with excess weight. Healthy weight loss can reduce medical costs, improve your overall health and help you live a longer life.
Our comprehensive, team-based approach to weight management focuses on offering individualized care to each patient. We provide you with the support, education, and tools to help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
Both our surgical weight loss and non-surgical weight loss programs are covered by most insurance plans. We do not charge a program fee.
The Gastric Sleeve procedure is one of the most common weight loss surgeries performed in the United States and is the type of bariatric surgery we offer at Iowa Weight Loss Specialists. The Gastric Sleeve is a minimally invasive surgery for losing weight that involves removing approximately 75% of the stomach, leaving it in the shape of a narrow sleeve. Bariatric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss by significantly reducing food intake and suppressing appetite.
The decision to have weight loss surgery is important and requires a lifelong commitment by both you and your surgical team. Before and long after surgery, our bariatric surgeon and support team will provide you with the resources to help you lose weight and keep it off for good. If you’re considering weight loss surgery, our free weight loss class is the best place to start!
As a comprehensive weight loss clinic, medical weight loss is our non-surgical weight loss option. Our medical weight management team will work with you to create a personalized plan to meet your weight loss goals. We will monitor your weight-related medical conditions to develop a weight loss plan that is safe, effective, and sustainable.
At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we want to help you make life-long changes. While fad diets may lead to weight loss, it is often very difficult to maintain that weight loss over time. 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.
