Weight-loss surgery can change lives
About Weight Management - Bariatrics
Struggling with weight loss can be a daily battle. If the effort to lose weight is beyond what you can manage, Ascension’s weight-loss and bariatric surgery teams are here for you. And from your first visit, we’ll provide the complete care you need, ranging from lifestyle changes to surgical options.
No two people are alike, so your weight-loss journey begins with your Ascension care team listening to your story. Together, we’ll develop a personalized care plan — one that could include learning healthy choices or having bariatric surgery.
Finding the right options for how to lose weight
What’s right for you depends on who you are. So, our doctors and specialists will work closely with you on a customized care plan built around you. Ascension weight-loss care teams — including dietitians, behavioral therapists, nurse practitioners and bariatric surgeons — will support you on your journey.
Beyond a diet: creating healthy lifestyle changes
Ascension’s weight-management specialists can work to help you reach your goals safely and effectively. We offer:
- Individual and group counseling.
- Nutrition and activity planning.
- Medically supervised weight-loss programs.
Supporting your decision for bariatric surgery
If you have tried diet and exercise and are thinking about other weight-loss options, we help you work through the decision process. Our informational seminars give you the opportunity to talk with our experienced care teams about bariatric surgery — including gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery. We understand that you have many questions and concerns, and we’ll offer compassionate support to help you find the answers you need.
The next step takes courage. But you’ve got this. And we’ll be right by your side every step of the way.
