Recognized for our expertise in surgical weight loss
Thank you for considering the Surgical Weight Reduction Center at Oregon Health and Science University
Recognized as a Center of Excellence with the American College of Surgeons, the OHSU Surgical Weight Reduction Center has an unmatched depth of experience in treating obesity and its complications.
A time for change
OHSU offers a comprehensive, organized plan of care dedicated to helping patients overcome the challenges of maintaining an ideal body weight. Individually tailored weight reduction plans incorporate nutrition, medications and individualized exercise routines.
In most cases, these operations can be performed laparoscopically, using advanced "keyhole" laparoscopic surgery techniques, with smaller scars and faster recovery. Our nurse practitioners, dietitians , psychologist and surgeons conduct a complete patient evaluation to determine if surgery is necessary and to ensure successful outcomes. Assessment at the OHSU Sleep Disorders Clinic and other specialty consultation is available if indicated.
