The Metabolism Center provides comprehensive team-based care for adults with a BMI of 30 or greater. The team understands that obesity is not a personal choice but a disease with serious health consequences. It is a chronic disease that is challenging to treat.
The team consists of obesity medicine specialist, endocrinologist, board certified surgeons, nurse practitioner, registered dietitian, certified personal trainer, licensed clinical social worker, and nursing support staff.
The overall goal of obesity management and treatment is to improve your quality of life, improve your health, and improve your body weight. The Center offers both medical and surgical treatment options with a focus on the four pillars:
- behavior modification
- physical activity
WeightSmart is a six to seven month comprehensive program, that involves frequent visits with the team. We will bill your insurance for each visit but it is important for you to understand your coverage and know if obesity services are part of your health plan. Not all plans cover obesity care.
