Nonsurgical Weight Loss Information
If you would like to learn more about FDA approved, safe and effective alternatives for a person struggling with weight loss, complete the form below and member of the Washington University gastroenterology team will contact you to answer any questions. If you are a candidate, we will set up a personal consultation, which is recommended to potential candidates of our nonsurgical weight loss treatments.
During your personal consultation, you will learn about treatment options, including intragastric balloon therapy, aspiration therapy, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and endoscopic gastric outlet repair. Pricing will be discussed as most insurance providers do not cover the cost of these weight loss options, but we offer package pricing to help you understand costs upfront.
