Diet and exercise alone aren’t always enough. If you have struggled with weight management over the years, Northside Hospital can help you understand the reasons for weight gain. We have weight management specialists who can identify underlying conditions that may be causing weight gain or hampering your ability to lose weight– such as a slow metabolism due to thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, hormonal conditions or fluid retention due to kidney issues.
If conventional weight management programs have not proven successful and you struggle with severe obesity, bariatric surgery may be an option for you. As an accredited bariatric surgery center with a team of specially trained bariatric certified surgeons, we have the expertise necessary to care for every aspect of bariatric patients’ needs – from your bariatric surgery planning through surgery and on to post-bariatric surgery care and wellness. Start the conversation and see if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery.
Our clinically proven, physician-supervised medical weight loss program helps patients understand their metabolic patterns and how a few changes can have a positive and lasting impact on their health. We know behavior patterns impact health and wellness, so we provide life coaching classes to assist with lifestyle modification and behavior changes. At Northside Hospital, our team of weight management physicians, dietitians, exercise specialists and behavioral health specialists help our participants reach and maintain their weight loss goals.
Youth today continue to struggle with weight gain – about 15% of our nation’s children are clinically obese. Changing negative habits early in life – and establishing positive eating habits and an active lifestyle – can lead to lifelong improved health and fitness.
