Non-Surgical Weight Loss
Diet and exercise alone aren’t always enough to achieve significant and lasting weight loss. First you need to understand your body and any underlying medical conditions that may be causing you to gain weight (and preventing you from losing it.)
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Everyone’s body is different. Everyone has different triggers. That’s why our program is individualized for each patient, grounded in medical testing, and designed for lasting results.
We give you the best chance possible of successfully maintaining healthy habits and staying off of medications for conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure once your treatment ends.
What to Expect
The first step in your treatment is to identify any underlying hormonal and metabolic imbalances or other health conditions that can interfere with your body’s ability to lose weight. We’ll start with a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history, diet, blood tests, and EKG. From there, we’ll develop a plan that works for your body and lifestyle.
Endocrinologist Dr. Lakshmi Kannan will supervise your weight loss plan to make sure it is safe, effective, and sustainable. She may prescribe medications that can help to reduce your appetite, reduce cravings, and jumpstart your metabolism. You’ll have frequent follow-up appointments with Dr. Kannan to monitor chronic health conditions (like diabetes and other heart disease risk factors) and track progress.
You will also have the opportunity add on additional services such as:
- Appetite-suppressant medications
- Diet and nutrition counseling
- Meal replacement plans
- Low-calorie diet
- Fitness classes
- Personal training
