Obesity is associated with multiple complications as detailed in the image below.
Obesity is a worldwide epidemic
Don’t feel like you are alone, the global prevalence of obesity has more than doubled since 1980. In 2014 more than 1.9 billion adults around the were considered overweight. Of those, over 600 million were obese. Obesity is now considered a disease, and should be treated as we treat high blood pressure, or any other medical conditions.

Are you ready to talk to me about your weight?
Don’t delay time is the key, take time for yourself to improve your life today Knowing your BMI is important as you begin to think about weight loss
A Small weight loss may reduce health risk
You may not need to lose as much weight as you think to see improvement in your health. A loss of 5% to 10% of your body weight can improve the risk of obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis.
Why is it hard to keep weight off?
It is not just you, it’s biology. For upto 12 months after weight loss, your body turns up the signals that trigger appetite, which can potentially cause weight regain. Talk to me how to lose weight and how to keep it off.
I provide comprehensive solution for medical weight loss. As an endocrinologist it is very important to look for and treat any hormonal cause of obesity.
The treatment strategy is highly individualized for each patient to address his or her weight loss needs and medical conditions in order to determine the best treatment options for them. I want to ensure all of our patients a safe and effective weight loss experience.
If surgical weight loss is indicated, patient undergoes thorough pre-op and post op evaluation and close follow up to prevent and treat any nutritional deficiencies. Patients also undergo periodic DXA scans as osteoporosis is a common occurrence after bariatric surgery.
We work as a team with our bariatric surgery colleagues. Our team is dedicated to your care through the entire process, from your initial consultation to seeing results!
We understand that successful, long-term weight loss is a life-long journey. We are here with our expertise to help patients in their commitment to weight management and to live a healthier lifestyle.
