We offer a wide range of medical bariatric treatments, tailored to your needs and weight loss goals.
Different types of medications (sometimes called weight loss pills) can help you lose weight by curbing your appetite or balancing your blood sugar levels. Our specialists can prescribe various medications that work together with diet and exercise changes. Medication may be recommended on a short- or long-term basis.
Your physician may recommend HMR (Health Management Resources), a meal replacement program where you eat specific foods (such as protein shakes) on a structured meal schedule. Patients on the HMR program meet regularly with an in-person support group. At these meetings, you get to hear from people who face similar challenges while you learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.
Your physician will perform a medical screening to determine which type of HMR diet is best for you. Patients generally don't need medical supervision for this diet unless you take diabetes medication. We are one of the only bariatric centers in Pennsylvania that offers this option.
Our nutrition professionals work one-on-one with you to teach you the basics of a healthy diet. We’ll give you guidance and tips to help you make sustainable changes to your diet and exercise habits.
Is emotional eating getting in the way of you reaching your goals? Our psychologists can help you identify and manage emotional factors that may be stunting your progress.
