Nutrition and Wellness
The Nutrition and Wellness Center provides advanced clinical expertise, specialized services and state-of-the-art technology. Specializing in bone health, diabetes, medical nutrition therapy, and weight management, patients receive the highest quality personalized care possible.
Weight Management Program
The Weight Management Program is a multidisciplinary, medically supervised weight loss program for overweight and obese patients. Our treatment programs are physician-monitored and designed to improve health through sustained weight loss based on reasonable long-term goals. The initial visit to our clinic involves a thorough nutrition evaluation. It is from these evaluations that goals are established and the treatment plan is initiated.
The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System has one of the country's most advanced centers for minimally invasive surgery. We offer robotic assisted bariatric procedures including laparoscopic gastric bypass, open gastric bypass and laparoscopic lap band procedures. We also provide body contouring procedures to reduce baggy skin and reshape the body after significant weight loss. These procedures include tummy tucks, circumferential lifts, thigh lifts, breast lifts/reductions, arm lifts, face and neck lifts.
The clinicians and staff at the Nutrition and Wellness Center will spend time getting to know you, your special needs, and your concerns. This permits us to develop a partnership with you that will help you understand your medical care and allow you to feel completely comfortable with your treatments.
Every member of the Nutrition and Wellness Center staff is a specialist in their respective area. Our staff is ready to work with you and answer your questions concerning specific illnesses, medical procedures, or other issues related to your care. A major emphasis in our Center is patient education. We can provide you with the latest information so that you can be fully knowledgeable and an active participant in your own care.
