at Geary Community Hospital

Your Journey Starts Here...

Innovative Weight Loss Solutions (IWLS) at Geary Community Hospital in Junction City, KS has been helping people lose weight since the program was created in 2000. In fact, Geary Community Hospital was the first hospital in Kansas to offer gastric bypass surgery.  At our inception, all of our surgeries were performed as open procedures, requiring longer hospital stays and lengthier recovery periods.  We now offer 3 different options for surgery, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, LAP-BAND®, and vertical sleeve gastrectomy.  These surgeries are all performed  laparoscopically, which dramatically reduces recovery time.   


For those not interested in surgery, we offer a nonsurgical weight loss program called Getting Back on Track. This is a program for anyone trying to lose weight, including those who have had weight loss surgery in the past. 

Whether you are ready for surgery, or just looking for help getting started on your weight loss journey, our team is here to help, by providing quality service, support, and education.
