Metabolic Weight Loss Clinic at UH Parma Medical Center
UH Parma Medical Center also offers New Direction, a medically supervised weight loss program that gives participants the tools needed to succeed at losing weight when other plans and diets have failed. New Direction offers free weekly support meetings and three physician-monitored diet plans that can be tailored to each individual’s needs.
Medical Weight Loss Options
It is important to know the cause of each person’s weight gain. Through our medical weight loss program, we will assess the history and causes of obesity and work with each patient to provide the individualized treatment that works for them.
Medical weight loss services include:
Behavior modification is the key to any weight loss program. We provide individualized counseling that focuses on each patient’s specific needs and behaviors.
Planning balanced satisfying meals is the key to successful weight loss. We work with each patient to plan healthy, satisfying meals.
Weight Loss Medications
Weight loss medications have been shown to be an effective complement to behavior modification and exercise to achieve meaningful weight loss. A variety of FDA-approved medications are available to patients who medically qualify.
Intra Gastric Balloon
The intra gastric balloon is a non-surgical option for weight loss. An inflatable balloon is placed into the stomach through a quick outpatient procedure with moderate sedation. We provide all assessment, placement and follow-up treatment for your gastric balloon.
Patients with failed weight loss surgery now have a solution. We provide a complete evaluation of each patient’s health status and an assessment of any ongoing complications to determine if a revision of the previous bariatric surgery is an option.
