Medication & Bariatric Surgery

Weight Loss medications can be of benefit for long term weight management. They help to reduce appetite and control cravings. They are an important tool used together with medical nutrition therapy and physical activity. After assessment, our certified obesity medicine specialist can prescribe and monitor weight loss medications. The available medications have been shown to improve many health conditions.

Bariatric Surgery is also one of the Pillars of Weight Management. Bariatric surgery procedures include sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass surgery. While we are not a surgical clinic, we can provide information about surgical options, assessments to see if surgery is right for you and referrals to bariatric surgery programs. Patients come to our clinic for pre and postoperative bariatric surgery care.
