Medical Weight Loss & Management
When you have a lot of weight to lose, turn to the weight-loss experts at Cone Health Medical Group. You’ll gain support, knowledge, and personalized recommendations that help you achieve your goals.
What’s Medical Weight Loss?
With medical weight loss, you work with a doctor and other specialists to safely shed weight without surgery.
Your CHMG medical weight-loss team understands—and targets—a wide range of factors that contribute to excess weight, including genetics, biology, medical issues, environment, and behavior. They also stay up-to-date on the latest scientific research about obesity and obesity treatment.
That means you can feel confident you’re getting an effective, healthy weight-loss plan that fits your needs.
Is Medical Weight Loss For Me?
You may benefit from medical weight loss if you’re affected by obesity—a medical term that means you have excess body fat. Health experts use Body Mass Index, or BMI, to see if you have obesity. Calculate your BMI online.
Medical weight loss may be right for you if you:
- Are at least 16 years old and have a BMI of 30 or above
- Have tried to lose weight on your own without lasting success
- Are ready to make changes to meet your health goals
