Weight Loss

About 12 million people in the United States are considered morbidly obese, meaning that they are more than 100 pounds over their ideal body weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 40 (greater than or equal to 35 if you have diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea).

Although diet and exercise are appropriate means of weight control among those who are mildly to moderately overweight, these methods are generally ineffective for the morbidly obese. For those who are morbidly obese, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommend that surgery is often the best choice.

We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program for both surgical and medical treatments for morbid obesity. Together, our physicians and medical professionals work to improve the overall quality of life for patients and their families by providing the most complete, high quality medical, surgical and follow-up care possible.

Our program currently performs comprehensive metabolic and weight loss procedures that include:

We understand surgery isn't for everyone. That's why our physicians at Medical Group of the Carolinas – Weight Loss Services also offer a medical weight loss program designed for those who prefer a non-surgical option and those who need medical weight loss prior to surgery. These programs are not a quick route to weight loss but instead focus on making smart choices, recognizing individual eating habits and making changes to maintain a healthy weight.
