Why Choose Medically Directed Weight Loss and Weight Loss Surgery?

Many people incorrectly believe that losing a substantial amount of weight can generally be achieved by simply trying to eat less and exercise more. While that may work for someone losing 10 pounds, studies have shown that patients on diets, exercise programs, or medication are able to lose on average 10% of their body weight, but tend to regain two-thirds of the weight within one year, and almost all of it within five years. Obesity is much more complex than many realize, and has genetic, environmental, metabolic, and a variety of other causes. We offer the most effective and longest-lasting options for weight loss.
