Sustained Weight Control 

Our sustained weight control practice treats the two parts of a successful weight loss program: the initial weight loss and maintenance.  Because, unhealthy weight is a chronic disease, long-term treatment is needed.

Our team practices the principles of obesity medicine.  Based on these principles, we prescribe personalized medical goals and plans for our patients.  These principles are:

  • Nutrition

  • Exercise

  • Self-monitoring

  • Long-term appetite suppression

There are FDA approved medications used for long-term weight control.

Check these references and learn more.

  1. Qsymia (phentermine & topiramate combination)

  2. Contrave (naltrexone & buproprion combination)

  3. Saxenda (liraglutide)​​-check to see if your insurance covers Saxenda here

The goal of medical treatment for unhealthy weight is to live longer, healthier lives.

Consult with your primary care physician or with us.  Remember, it's never just about the medications, just about nutrition, just about monitoring yourself, nor just about exercise.  All four principles of obesity medicine must be followed resulting in significant life-style changes and sustained weight loss.  If you're ready, bring the motivation; we bring the knowledge and training.
