Elmwood Park, Illinois

Incorporated in 1914, the village of Elmwood Park, Illinois, is located between Chicago and the Des Plaines River. From humble beginnings, the population in Elmwood Park boomed between 1920 and 1928, allowing the area to expand into the foundation of the thriving community we know today. The suburb’s central location makes it the perfect spot for both urban and rural adventures, and you’ll find plenty of ways to stay active nearby.

Throughout the multitude of parks, you’ll find scenic trails to suit your choice of cardio, whether that’s running, hiking, biking, or walking. Speaking of ways to keep moving—check out the Brookfield Zoo. The extensive zoo features 450 different species of animals, so if you’re looking for a family-friendly excursion, a trip is enough to keep you moving all day long.

With the adjustable Lap-Band®, patients looking for weight-loss help can take control of their lives. The gastric band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach, reducing its capacity, limiting the amount of food you can eat, and promoting your feeling of fullness. Performed laparoscopically, the procedure is minimally invasive, allowing patients to return home the same day and recover more quickly than other bariatric procedures. If you’re looking for a safe and effective weight-loss solution, the Lap-Band procedure is available via several surgeons near Elmwood Park.
