Cleveland Clinic's nationally and internationally recognized bariatric weight loss surgery program is conveniently offered at Lutheran Hospital.
Together, world-class surgeons, physicians, anesthesiologists, psychologists, counselors, dietitians and specialized nurses focus on your long-term weight loss success, with the #1 bariatric surgery program in Ohio or a non-surgical medical weight loss treatment plan. With help from our specialists in sleep disorders, gastroenterology and nutrition, cardiology, internal medicine and other obesity-related fields, as needed, our patients receive the support they need for a permanent return to health.
Each patient in our surgery program is also assigned a patient navigator, who serve as a single point of contact throughout your weight loss surgery journey, offering encouragement and support every step of the way.
