Although each individual has a unique health history, many people find it extremely difficult to lose weight. However, carrying excessive weight can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, joint and back problems and cancer. Being overweight can affect virtually all aspects of a person's life.
At Conway Medical Center, we offer a comprehensive weight loss surgery program, as well as other non-surgical weight loss options, to help patients lose dangerous pounds and maintain a healthy weight. Losing weight is not about just looking good - it's about feeling good and staying healthy.

Non-Surgical Weight Loss
Dr. Nuwayhid performs a reversible non-surgical weight loss procedure utilizing the ORBERA® Intragastric Balloon which means no incisions, stitches or scars. This weight loss balloon is a non-invasive option for those with a BMI of 30 to 40 looking to lose 35 to 40 pounds of excess weight. ORBERA® is a durable gastric balloon made out of soft silicone. It is inserted orally through your esophagus and placed directly into your stomach during a quick procedure. While it is temporarily in your stomach for six months it encourages your body to adapt to healthier portion sizes. After six months the stomach balloon is carefully removed.
