Weight Loss Surgery Program


Located in the Centegra Health Center in Huntley, Illinois, the Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center offers a multidisciplinary approach to significant weight loss for individuals when all other attempts at weight loss have failed. This is a comprehensive weight loss program that addresses the whole person, combining surgery with behavior-based counseling, exercise and nutritional counseling with a registered dietitian to achieve the most effective results possible. Following surgery, patients are encouraged to participate in a support group that further encourages them as they stick to the program and achieve weight-loss goals.

The journey to better health and quality of life starts with our comprehensive weight loss program:

  • Free informational sessions
  • Consultation with Dr. Amir Heydari
  • Pre-operative classes and testing, including BMI
  • Meetings with a registered dietitian, psychotherapist and an exercise physiologist
