The UW Health Surgical Weight Management Program works with patients to lose weight safely, restore health and improve quality-of-life. We believe the most important aspect of weight loss is improved health. The true measure of our program's success is the improvement or elimination of many weight-related health conditions.


We appreciate your interest in our program. If you are ready to get started, we ask that you watch our online webinar. Once you have viewed the webinar, please contact your primary care provider for a referral to our program.
