Losing weight and changing eating habits can be difficult. At NorthShore, our Weight Loss Management Clinic offers a physician-led program to help patients successfully and effectively lose weight, prevent disease and improve overall health.
As part of our medical weight loss clinic, a tailored program is developed for each patient to optimize results. Through comprehensive guidance, education and counseling, patients are given all the tools needed to ensure weight loss success.
Every patient’s journey to weight loss is different. This is why our physician-led team works closely with a variety of experts to personalize your experience for the best outcome. Depending on the results from your initial visit—which includes a thorough health history, physical and body mass index (BMI) determination—this team may include a:
- Health psychologist
- Advanced Practice Nurse
- Exercise specialist
Your weight management team collaborates on your plan and communicates with each other through our state-of-the-art electronic medical records system.
Whether you’d benefit most from a personalized exercise and nutrition plan or a better understanding of your eating habits and triggers, our team will work with you to best address your unique needs.
In order to keep you on track, we will set up structured follow-up visits to review and monitor your progress. Based on your plan, medical options may also be considered to help manage potential cardiac risks such as high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol.
Should bariatric surgery be the right option for you, our team will coordinate your care with our bariatric team.
It takes perseverance to make true lifestyle changes, and our team at the NorthShore Weight Loss Management Clinic is here to help you achieve your weight loss goals and lead a healthy life.
