Medical Weight Management Program Options
Our medical weight management program is specifically designed to provide
oversight for weight loss and weight maintenance. We use a combination
of the following non-surgical therapies for weight loss:
- Behavioral Therapy
- Medical Nutrition Therapy
- Exercise Therapy
- Medication Therapy (when appropriate)
Medical Weight Management is for those who:
- Do not want surgery
- Do not qualify for surgery
- Want or need help with weight management after bariatric surgery
- Want surgery, but have an insurance required medically supervised weight
loss plan before becoming eligible to receive benefits for bariatric surgery
Each patient is evaluated on an individual basis and receives recommendations
and a personal care plan for weight loss and weight maintenance. It is
important to identify your needs, concerns and goals to create a plan
that is best for you.
Option 1: Comprehensive Medical Weight Management
This option is a 10-week plan that is an all-inclusive physician supervised
plan designed to address the multiple needs related to weight management.
It includes Medical Nutrition Therapy with food or meal replacements for
weight loss and weight maintenance.
Option 2: Supplemental Medical Weight Management Plan
This is a plan created by you and your care team. This plan will include
three resources chosen by you such as education classes and consultations
with a dietitian or behavior health specialist. You decide which choice
gives the best level and oversight you need.
Weight loss medications are available with Option 1 or Option 2 if safe
