MBSAQIP accredited center badgeIowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics partners with Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, a leading weight loss clinic, to offer weight loss surgery to our patients. Our team provides comprehensive and effective weight loss programs, from surgical weight loss to medical weight management. Because of this outstanding commitment, Iowa Weight Loss Specialists has been named a Center of Excellence by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).  This designation demonstrates their commitment to safety and providing each patient with the highest level of card.

Weight Loss Surgery, or bariatric surgery, includes a number of different types of surgeries for weight loss. Our dedicated bariatric surgeon at Iowa Specialty Hospital performs gastric sleeve surgery. Gastric sleeve surgery involves removing approximately 75% of the stomach laparoscopically, so the stomach takes the shape of a narrow sleeve. This helps patients lose weight by restricting food intake. With this form of bariatric surgery, our patients can experience the benefits of weight loss and have a lesser risk of major post-operative complications that can occur with other surgical weight loss options. 

This type of surgery for losing weight is performed by an experienced bariatric surgeon and backed by comprehensive weight loss services. Our medical weight management team will work with you to create a plan of care that meets your individual needs and supports you to reach your health goals. Gastric sleeve surgery is the first step in a lifelong journey to a healthy weight and lifestyle.
