Our Program's Philosophy

Our philosophy is to improve our patients’ health through an individualized, multi-disciplinary approach, promoting safe weight loss and maintenance.

Our services focus on assisting you to make lifestyle changes which will help you succeed in your health goals.

Why This Program is Unique

What makes this program different from other weight management programs is that each patient is guided and supervised by a health professional team whose recommendations come specifically from the patient’s needs and health risks. The program offers a wide spectrum of options and promotes a full range of tools, rather than utilizing a single method approach. We are excited to be offering a new weight loss procedure in our Emerson ASC called ReShape Balloon. ReShape is a non-surgical approach to weight loss that’s been proven to help people lose weight and keep it off.  Please visit our ReShape page for further information.
