Are You A Candidate?

If you have tried losing weight without success, have health problems related to being overweight or obese and are ready to make permanent lifestyle changes, then our weight management program may be right for you.

Regardless of the factors that led to excess weight, we can help you make the changes needed to achieve sustainable weight loss. No matter how much you currently weigh or what your health conditions may be, we have a solution for you:

Conservative weight loss program using weight loss medication to get you started;

Intragastric balloons (Obalon and Orbera) to help you eat less and stay full;

Sleeve Gastrectomy and LapBand surgery;

If you have had surgery but have regained weight, we offer a restart program that may even include revision surgery or conversion to a different type of surgery;

You are eligible for our weight management programs no matter what your weight or weight-related health conditions are.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

We use your BMI ( a more accurate reflection of your weight) to help you decide which program, device or surgery best suits your needs. Your body mass index (BMI) is a weight to height ratio and is a helpful indicator of total body fat. While there are some limitations with BMI calculators, they do provide you and your weight loss team an idea of how much weight you may need to lose.
