You have everything to gain



We'll work with you to create the  best weight loss solution

Let’s be honest – whether you have 10 extra pounds or many more, losing weight isn’t easy. Many people try all kinds of diets, supplements and exercise programs, but still fail to realize any long-term weight loss.

You win with weight loss
The medical benefits of weight loss can include:
• Lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke
• Reducing or eliminating type 2 diabetes
• Increasing energy levels
• Eliminating back, knee and joint pain
• Improving sleep and reducing sleep apnea effects

We can help
Fairview offers a variety of ways to help you lose weight, including:
• Nutritional counseling
• Weight loss surgery
CAN DO Health Coaching  

Nutrition counseling
Ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a Fairview dietitian. You will meet one-on-one to discuss ways you can improve your nutrition to meet your goals. Insurance coverage varies.

Weight loss surgery
If you have roughly 100 pounds of excess weight you’d like to lose – you may be a candidate for weight-loss surgery. During weight-loss surgery, the surgeon actually modifies your digestive system so you feel full sooner, eat less and lose weight.

Weight-loss surgery is a serious commitment and a very personal decision. Our weight-loss specialists at Fairview Southdale Hospital and University of Minnesota Medical Center, have helped thousands of people lose weight and can put together a plan that works for you.
