Weight management

Women strive to maintain a healthy weight and stay fit, but it isn’t always easy.  Through our Healthy Family Program, our doctors and nutritionists can help you take control and maintain your desired healthy weight. The Healthy Family Program helps the whole family adopt a healthier lifestyle through education, counseling, family involvement and group support.

Bariatric medicine

Bariatric medicine is a surgical tool to assist overweight individuals with weight loss. Patients who combine bariatric surgery with lifestyle changes, including an improved diet and exercise, can experience complete and safe weight loss.

Online nutrition journal

We have a new, online nutrition tracker where you can manage your nutritional goals. You can track your weight loss, your food intake and eating patterns in order to establish a healthier lifestyle and nutrition pattern and to assist in the prevention of disease.
