Weight Management | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

Norton Weight Management Services

Whether weight loss (bariatric) surgery or medically guided weight loss is right for you, the board-certified specialists at Norton Weight Management Services have the training and skills to guide you through your weight loss journey.

No health system in Louisville or Southern Indiana has been providing bariatric and medical weight loss care longer than Norton Weight Management Services.

  • We are experienced with a full range of the latest bariatric surgery options, including gastric bypass, gastric banding and gastric sleeve.
  • Our weight loss solutions also include nonsurgical approaches that guide you through the life-changing process with the oversight of a medical professional.
  • Our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons perform more than 500 procedures each year.
  • We typically use minimally invasive procedures, meaning most patients have just a few small incisions and may experience less pain, fewer complications and faster recovery.
  • We’ll stay with you to support and celebrate your lifelong commitment to health.
  • Our comprehensive approach means you’ll be connected with the Norton Healthcare system — the largest in Louisville and Southern Indiana.
  • Norton Health & Wellness Center was designed with our weight loss patients in mind. Our services include educational seminars and support groups, presurgical visits and testing, spacious patient rooms, a demonstration kitchen and more at our Dupont Road location.
  • Participate in online bariatric and medical weight management seminars from home to help decide whether treatment is right for you.
