Medical Weight Management
For some individuals who are overweight, surgery may not be the next step or the right approach to care. That is why Lourdes offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary medically-based weight-management program. Individuals who choose this program include those who elect not to pursue weight-loss surgery, are not candidates for it or have had bariatric surgery in the past and have regained weight. The nonsurgical weight-loss program can provide these patients with an opportunity for significant, sustainable, medically supervised weight reduction.
The Lourdes Medically Based Weight Management Program is a 10-week series offered in the community. For dates and location, see our events listing for the latest sessions.
The program’s team of experts, including a Lourdes physician and a variety of wellness practitioners are here to help you set the stage for successful weight loss. Our physician will meet with you prior to, during and after the 10 week program to assess your progress and next steps. This medically-based approach takes into account your individual medical condition and goals.
Our wholistic practitioners will help you to learn how to eat in a mindful manner, obtain fitness strategies for weight loss, work through triggers, manage your stress and more.
The cost of the program has been kept low and at a cost highly comparable to other programs, but provides much more added value and medical support.
