Iowa Weight Loss Specialists offers both surgical weight loss and medical weight loss (non-surgical) options. Both programs aim to reduce health risks associated with excess weight, cut medical costs, reduce joint pain, and help you live a longer life. Our programs are covered by insurances and we do not charge a program fee.
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. The surgery involves removing approximately 75% of the stomach, leaving it in the shape of a sleeve, which promotes weight loss by decreasing hunger and restricting food intake.
Medical weight loss is our non-surgical program led by a team of Nurse Practitioners who will work with you to create a personalized plan towards your weight loss goals. Our team will provide individual and personalized care by monitoring your weight related medical conditions and will work with your family doctor. 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 to keep it off, and we believe that long-lasting results are achieved by making small changes over time.
