Innovative Weight Loss Solutions (IWLS)

In 2000, Geary Community Hospital started the first bariatric surgery program in the state of Kansas.  Over the years, we have honed it into the extremely strong, team-based program that Innovative Weight Loss Solutions (IWLS) is today.  With state-of-the-art facilities, skilled surgeons, as well as excellent nutrition education and emotional support, we provide the tools needed for effective long-term weight loss success.


Getting Back on Track is a weight loss program for anyone trying to lose weight including those who have had weight loss surgery.
