If you’ve tried diet after diet without success, Lehigh Valley Health Network Weight Management Center can help. Physician-monitored weight loss might be right for you if you are struggling to lose weight and ready to take action, repeated attempts to lose weight by dieting have failed, you have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 and you are 18 years of age or older. You must also be committed to lifestyle changes and agree to regular follow-up appointments.
Our physician-monitored weight-loss program includes:
- Initial examination
- Diet and nutritional counseling
- Behavior modification
- Prescription appetite suppressants (if needed)
- Maintenance support
If you choose weight-loss surgery, LVHN’s Weight Management Center provides the education and support you need so you can make permanent changes for the better.
