What Surgery is Right for Me?

There are three major weight loss surgeries out there today: the Gastric Sleeve, the Lap-Band, and the Gastric Bypass.

Although we are aware that these other surgery options exist, Iowa Weight Loss Specialists performs the Gastric Sleeve on our patients, because we believe the advantages of the surgery are greater than any of the other options and the downsides are far less. The risk of major post-operative complications are less than any other weight loss surgery.

Please click on each link below to review the list of pros and cons of each procedure.
