If trying to lose weight seems like a never-ending struggle and you could use some help from medical experts, we are ready to join your team.

Are you ready for a change?

The Nebraska Medicine bariatrics team is here to help you overcome your weight-loss challenges through nonsurgical weight-loss programs and bariatric surgery. Call us at 402.559.9500 to get started.

We offer:

Nonsurgical weight-loss programs

Interested in using diet, exercise and medication to achieve a healthy weight, resolve other health issues or prepare for bariatric surgery? We'll work with you to create a customized weight-loss program, which always includes lifestyle changes and may also include meal replacement, medicine, diet, exercise and counseling.

Surgical weight-loss procedures

We offer several options for patients who qualify for weight-loss surgery. While gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are two of the most common, we will work with you to determine which procedure will most likely give you the best results.

Ongoing support

We know that a successful transition to lifelong healthy living requires more than simply losing the weight. Our team includes medical nutritionists, an exercise specialist and a clinical psychologist to support your medical, physical and mental health throughout this process.

We also offer classes and consultations on a variety of topics, including: healthy eating, portion identification, healthy coping, physical activity planning and the psychology of eating and weight loss. Please refer to this flyer to learn more about our support group for postsurgical patients.
