Weight management & bariatrics in Wisconsin

Bariatric care teams at Ascension in Wisconsin provide specialty care for surgical and medically supervised weight-loss. If you are obese with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or above, we offer weight-loss options that are right for you. Talk with your doctor about your answers to these questions:

  • Does my current weight cause any other chronic health conditions?
  • Can I commit to documented weight-loss efforts required by my insurance plan?
  • Am I willing to re-evaluate my diet and exercise regimen to live a healthier life?

Weight-loss surgery can be a deeply personal, life-changing decision. Our doctors and nurses listen to understand you and your health concerns. Then, we work with you to create a weight-loss plan that’s right for you.

Medically supervised weight-loss programs

Bariatric surgery is not your only option. We offer consultations with doctors who specialize in medically supervised, non-surgical weight loss and medication management. Our dietitians work with you to create a personalized nutrition plan with meal ideas. We address your lifestyle, activity level, foods and behaviors that trigger emotional eating.
