Nationwide Children’s Hospital is one of America’s largest health care and research centers focusing on children and teens. We care for more than one million patient visits each year. Families travel from around the country and even the world for our care. Our doctors and researchers work to advance children’s health care.
Our Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition involves prevention, teaching, research, medical and bariatric weight management. We are one of the only centers in the country to offer all three bariatric surgery options for teens. These include gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and adjustable gastric band.
Nationwide Children’s is also one of only five hospitals in the country taking part in a research study to better understand the benefits and risks of bariatric surgery in teens.
Transition of care
We work closely with our patients and their family to smoothly transition to a bariatric center focused on adult patients when and if it becomes necessary. Nationwide Children's Hospital is a major pediatric affiliate of The Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University, College of Medicine.
