Lose weight and get more out of life
Kalamazoo Weight Loss Program
Get back to the life you love…with the Borgess Weight Management program
At Ascension Borgess Hospital, we offer a supportive, nurturing environment and a customized treatment approach to help you achieve your weight loss goals through either a non-surgical weight loss program or surgical weight loss procedures.
Our team can provide you with the tools and support you need to make the decision that’s right for you. We can help you lose and manage your weight for a lifetime, so that you can get back to the little things you love, like enjoying time outside, playing with your children or grandchildren, or pursuing your favorite hobby.
Medical Weight Loss Options
We offer non-surgical weight loss programs that include lifestyle/behavior modification and nutrition counseling in a non-discriminating, compassionate environment. No seminar is needed for an initial consultation. For more information, please call 269-226-5456.
Our program is an individualized approach, not a "one size fits all." This support is delivered in a variety of ways, so there’s something for everyone—exercise or nutrition presentations/workshops, cooking demonstrations and recipe samplings, grab-and-go diet and exercise tips, calorie counters, success strategies and tracking tools. Our team of physicians, dieticians and healthcare professionals assist you in finding and maintaining weight loss success.
Surgical Weight Loss Options
Most of our surgical procedures can be performed laparoscopically. This minimally invasive surgical technique uses video technology to assist the procedure, resulting in smaller incisions, reduced pain, shorter recovery time and reduced risk of infection.
The Ascension Borgess Hospital Borgess Bariatric Center offers the latest and safest weight loss surgery options:
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
- Revisions of previous weight loss surgeries
For more information, please call 269-226-5456.

Join us at one of our informational seminars and hear from surgeons about how you too can make the change for a healthier life.

Bariatric Support Groups
Support is one of the key ingredients to long-term success. Maintaining a healthy weight takes a lot of work and support. We offer a wide range of services to further assist your weight loss goals.
