Iowa Specialty Hospital is a proud partner of Iowa Weight Loss Specialists! Iowa Weight Loss Specialists offers both surgical weight loss and medical weight loss (non-surgical) options. Both weight loss programs aim to reduce the health risks associated with excess weight. Healthy weight loss can help cut medical costs, reduce joint pain, and help you live a longer life.
Medical weight loss is our non-surgical weight loss program, which is led by a team of nurse practitioners and includes dietitians and behavioral health providers. Our medical weight management team will work with you to create a personalized plan to meet your specific weight loss goals. Our weight loss team monitors your weight-related medical conditions to develop a weight loss plan that is safe and effective. Our providers can address issues that can affect weight such as sleep disorders, emotional issues relating to food, thyroid imbalances, diabetes, PCOS, and other medical conditions.
Iowa Specialty Hospital offers a medical weight management program that can include:
Nutrition assessment and education with our dietitian
Medications for weight loss
Additional guidance from other specialists such as behavioral health support

Bariatric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss by decreasing hunger and restricting food intake. The Gastric Sleeve procedure is one of the most common weight loss surgeries performed in the United States. This type of bariatric surgery involves removing approximately 75% of the stomach, leaving it in the shape of a narrow sleeve.
Our weight management providers provide medical weight management before and after surgery to ensure you are fully supported throughout your weight loss journey. It is our goal to help you modify behaviors and habits to help you achieve your weight loss goals and to maintain that weight loss for the long haul.
We offer lifelong support to all of our patients and are here for you for every step of your weight loss journey!
