This is a customized weight management strategy for the patient managed by a medical doctor. After conducting a comprehensive physical to identify any latent health issues, the healthy weight management team will perform a BMI check, body composition analysis, and nutritional evaluation. Your doctor might prescribe dietary supplements, meal replacements, or other dietary modifiers to assist in your weight loss.
If medical surgery is needed for your weight loss, then we can assist with a preoperative assessment. Here we focus on risk factors for cardiac, pulmonary, and infectious complications. We would also consider information about the patient’s condition for which the surgery is planned and any previous surgical procedures. This medical assessment is an important component of the anesthetic care of patients. We can work with you and the bariatric surgeon to provide the evaluation weeks before the surgery.
A medically supervised weight loss plan includes many tools and resources designed to support the patient’s specific weight loss journey to enable them to meet and surpass their weight loss goals. Our medical practitioners will create a custom plan, exercise tips, and instructions to suit your individual needs. We will also conduct a medical workup and will screen you for existing conditions.
