Rockford, Illinois

Welcome to Rockford! Situated in Illinois’s Winnebago County just on the edge of the Rock River, Rockford is a wonderful place to visit or call home. This Rust Belt metropolis was established in the mid-1830s and is referred to as ‘The Forest City’ by its citizens. 

Things to do in Rockford

Those who find themselves in the Forest City can enjoy wonderful viewing of the Anderson Japanese Gardens or find bliss in the Klehm Arboretum. In addition, you may find yourself touring the old Tinker Swiss Cottage or enjoying a performance at the Coronado Performing Arts Center. If you have the time, we suggest a trip to the Burpee Museum of Natural History where the incredible exhibits will leave you in awe. 

Weight Loss Solutions in Rockford

Rockford, Illinois is also home to surgeons offering Lap-Band® as a solution for weight loss. The Lap-Band procedure is a minimally invasive weight-loss surgery that is unparalleled in safety, adjustability, and effectiveness. 

Patients undergoing the Lap-Band procedure receive an adjustable band, which is placed around the upper portion of the stomach. This band limits the amount of food you can eat, promoting fullness and a healthy caloric intake. Because Lap-Band is laparoscopic, it allows patients to return home the same day and recover more quickly than with other weight-loss surgeries. 

To find this safe, adjustable, and effective procedure in the Rockford area, find a list of providers below:
