Available Weight Loss Options

The CWLS program offers the most comprehensive approach to weight loss in Northwest Ohio for those who are clinically severely overweight (100 pounds overweight or more) . Laparoscopic and open surgical options are available as well as a medical weight loss management program. Our laparoscopic and open surgical options include:

  • the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
  • the Biliopancreatic Diversion with the duodenal switch (BPD/DS)
  • the LAP Band System
  • Revision Procedures
  • Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

The Best Option

For losing 100 pounds or more, your best option is weight-loss surgery. Typically, you'll lose 66 to 80% of your excess weight within 18 to 24 months after surgery. After this weight loss, you'll not only have a new body, but also you'll discover lifestyle and emotional changes that will make your weight easier to maintain and easier to keep off.

If your Body Mass Index does not make you a candidate or you don't meet the criteria for weight-loss surgery, or if you choose not to have surgery, we are happy to offer you "Choose to W.I.N." (Winning in Nutrition), our medical weight-loss management program supervised by a physician and taught by a registered dietician.
