Weight loss

Getting your weight back on track

Maintaining a healthy weight through controlled calorie consumption and regular physical activity has a significant impact on your overall health. Carrying around extra pounds weighs heavily on the body’s major organs. At Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center, our comprehensive weight loss programs offer both surgical and nonsurgical weight loss options. We can help you determine where you are and where you need to be  and help you figure out which option is the best for you.

If you’ve struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise, our weight loss programs can help get you back on track, or our support team can help you determine if weight loss surgery is right for you.

If surgery is a good fit, you can feel confident about placing your care with us. The Novant Health Bariatric Center is nationally recognized for quality care as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence designated by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
