Considering bariatric surgery?
Is your weight running your life and affecting your health? Have you tried every diet under the sun? Bariatric surgery may be your solution for long-term weight loss. We know that being overweight isn’t about a lack of willpower, and we offer proven, medically based solutions. Most importantly, we genuinely care about your success.
Bariatric surgery is performed at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. The bariatric surgery team in Eau Claire works in partnership with colleagues in La Crosse to offer the bariatric surgery program to patients throughout Western Wisconsin.
The initial evaluation will be completed by bariatric surgeons in Eau Claire, with the remainder of the pre-bariatric surgery education completed by a multi-disciplinary team of providers in La Crosse that includes behavioral therapists, dietitians, exercise physiologists and bariatricians.
When patients have completed the multi-disciplinary evaluation in La Crosse, they will return to Eau Claire to meet with the bariatric surgeon and have the surgery. After the surgery, patients will be followed by both the bariatric surgeon in Eau Claire and the multi-disciplinary team in La Crosse. Our bariatric surgery teams, in Eau Claire and La Crosse, work closely together to ensure all needs are met for patients in our bariatric surgery program.
Through dietary counseling, behavior modification, exercise, support and bariatric surgery, we do more than help reduce the weight of patients’ bodies. We help you reinvent yourself! Watch this video featuring our bariatric surgeon and coordinator to learn more.
