Dr. Harry J. Lefebre, M.D.

Dr. Harry J. Lefebre M.D., Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity (DABom.)

Dr. H. Lefebre founded his Calgary Weight Control Clinic in March 1988 after practicing family medicine in Calgary. It was the first medical practice limited to obesity (bariatric) treatment in Western Canada. Dr. Lefebre (in 1990) became the first physician in Canada to obtain Diplomate status with the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM).

“Bariatric Medicine is the medically supervised treatment of obesity and it is associated conditions”. The term, bariatric, was derived from the Greek word “weight” and coined by several interested physicians in 1950 when they formed the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP), now the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA). The OMA advocates a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to the treatment of obesity.

Dr. Lefebre is now enjoying retirement and continues to support the clinic, now known as the Medical Weight Management Clinic
