Weight Management Center
Palomar Health’s Weight Management Center offers comprehensive programs providing you with personalized attention as we work toward your weight-loss goal. No two journeys are the same. You will schedule an initial consultation to discover what your needs are for living a quality and productive life.
Our complete program offers the following surgical and non-surgical options:
Bariatric surgery is an operation that is performed in order to help individuals lose weight by reducing calorie absorption and the amount of food a person can eat at one time.
Attend an educational seminar hosted one of our Board-Certified Surgeons, to learn more about what to expect before and after bariatric surgery.
Medically Supervised Weight Loss
After a thorough consultation and medical history intake, your care team will prescribe a personalized weight loss program of exercise, diet, and/or medication.
A Registered Dietician will provide medical nutrition therapy helpful for weight loss. This includes a personalized plan of how many calories to eat per day to lose weight steadily and safely.
Once you are evaluated and it is determined you are ready to start a program, we will connect you with an exercise physiologist to assist with weight-loss and/or maintenance.
Part of a successful program involves the support of those who are walking the journey with you. Attendance of these group meetings is extremely beneficial.
For your convenience, we keep our center stocked with the quality weight management products that we recommend to our patients as part of their program.
