Non-Surgical Weight-loss Programs
Interested in using diet, exercise and medication to achieve a healthy weight, resolve other health issues or prepare for bariatric surgery? We'll work with you to create a customized weight-loss program, which always includes lifestyle changes and may also include meal replacement, medicine, diet, exercise and counseling.
Surgical Weight-loss Procedures
We offer several options for patients who qualify for weight-loss surgery. While gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are two of the most common, we will work with you to determine which procedure will most likely give you the best results.
We know that a successful transition to lifelong healthy living requires more than simply losing the weight. Our team includes medical nutritionists, an exercise specialist and a clinical psychologist to support your medical, physical and mental health throughout this process.
We also offer classes and consultations on a variety of topics, including: healthy eating, portion identification, healthy coping, physical activity planning, and the psychology of eating and weight loss.
