Surgical and Non-Surgical Health and Lifestyle Solutions

We can help identify the approach that’s right for you

Heartland Weight Loss Clinic offers surgical and non-surgical solutions for weight loss.  Both can be highly effective but require a commitment to achieving a long-term, healthy lifestyle.  Best results are often achieved when pairing in a non-surgical program with a weight loss surgery.  The non-surgical weight loss plans offer support before and after any surgical procedure.

No two weight-loss journeys are the same

Choosing What’s Right for You

Many factors come into play when selecting a weight loss solution.  We start by evaluating your BMI and current health status.  Next, your comfort and commitment level regarding surgical and non-surgical weight loss solutions guide the program development.  Finally, we accompany you through your weight loss journey to monitor your health and progress.
