The Franciscan St. Francis Weight Loss Center helps people live healthier and longer lives through bariatric surgery and our physician-directed weight loss programs.
Everyone has a different family history, different life experiences and a different point of view. Weight loss is different for everyone, too. That’s why the Franciscan St. Francis Weight Loss Center offers a range of medical and surgical treatments for people who are struggling with extra weight:
- Bariatric surgery: Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and Lap-Band surgeries. Recommended for patients with a BMI of 40 or higher, or patients with a BMI of 35 and higher and who have other conditions such as diabetes or sleep panea.
- Medically supervised weight loss: One-on-one bariatric physician consultation, healthy eating and behavioral counseling. Recommended for patients for whom surgical weight loss is not an option or for those who are considering surgery but need to meet a physician-directed weight loss requirement for their insurance plans.
- Support groups and classes. Teaching skills to help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
- Individual consultation on exercise, nutrition or behavior management for weight loss for patients who prefer one-on-one interaction.
We know that successful weight loss is a life-changing experience, and the Franciscan St. Francis Weight Loss Center team works with you every step of the way. Our weight-loss specialists partner with you to achieve sustained weight loss, improve serious medical conditions and increase the quality of your life.
