Based on healthier choices
Introducing a weight management program based on healthy lifestyle choices that relies on academic research. The program is built on an inter-professional approach and not focused on surgical or pharmacological options. The program staff is led by a family physician who has published extensive research on obesity and is board certified in Sports Medicine. The team is rounded out by specialists in nutrition and a care coordinator. By using a holistic approach, the team develops a customized treatment plan tailored for each patient and based on the patient's unique needs. Some people need more emphasis on activity, while others focus on controlling their eating or changing their habits. Whatever is needed, we are here to help support our patients' efforts for the long-term.
A new option
This is not a cookie cutter approach or “one size fits all” program. It offers a new option to help those who choose to create a healthier lifestyle. It's not a quick-fix approach, but helps patients create a plan they can live with for a lifetime. With the support and expertise of a medical team whose goal is a healthier and happier life for their patients, individuals can find success. It’s unique, individualized and ideal for those whose weight has limited their function or impacted their health and activities. In addition to those with obesity (BMI > 30) who might feel more energetic if they were to lose some excess weight, this program is a great option for individuals with: diabetes, high blood pressure, back pain, joint pain, or planned hip or knee replacement surgeries.
