Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare is excited to offer weight loss solutions to those who have struggled with a significant weight problem throughout their life. We are proud to provide surgical weight loss options to our patients.
We understand the many physical, emotional and psychological issues caused by being clinically obese. Our caring and compassionate staff are committed to providing exceptional care to each and every patient.
Our Midwest Institute of Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery™ is designated through the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program as a MBSAQIP Accredited Level 1 Center. This designation gives us the ability to perform weight loss surgery, such as Laparoscopic (minimally invasive) Surgery, Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass, Lap-Band®, and Sleeve Gastrectomy, to patients with Medicare.
J. Matthew Glascock, MD, FACS, a general surgeon specializing in laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery, has a first-hand appreciation for the numerous benefits of this type of surgery, and has given hundreds of patients a new outlook on life.
He also supports the non-surgical options provided within his practice by Maria Farmer, ARNP.
