The UW Health Medical and Surgical Weight Management Program offers our patients the means to lose weight safely, restore health and improve quality of life. We believe the most important aspect of weight loss is improved health after surgery or medical therapy. The true measure of our program’s success is the improvement or elimination of many weight-related health conditions. Our program staff partners with you and provides you the resources needed to continue on your path to a healthier life.
