The Chicago Center for Bariatric Surgery & Medical Weight Loss

The Chicago Center for Bariatric Surgery & Medical Weight Loss at Westlake Hospital provides patients suffering from morbid obesity with the treatment and support they need to lose excess weight and keep it off.

We provide three surgical weight-loss and medical management options at The Chicago Center for Bariatric Surgery & Medical Weight Loss:

  • Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass - Uses tiny incisions and special laparoscopic technologies to create a tiny stomach pouch so you will feel more full when you eat.
  • Laparoscopic Gastric Band (Lap-Band) - Offers a reversible, adjustable approach to weight loss surgery. A ring is placed around the upper part of the stomach, to ensure that you feel more full and eat less. The band is adjustable and can be removed if you choose.
  • Single Incision Laparoscopic Gastric Band (Lap-Band) - The same as a regular Lap-Band surgery, except the band is inserted through a single incision, as opposed to six cuts - minimizing scarring and pain, and promoting a faster recovery time.
  • Medical Weight Loss Options - Have a one-on-one consultation with our Medical Weight Loss Physician to discuss the right options for you.
