Overview

Your journey to losing weight does not have to be taken alone. One-third of Americans are overweight, and tens of thousands of people every year turn to medical weight loss to avoid obesity and live healthier and happier lives.

At Mercy Health, we partner with you to develop a lifelong plan for weight loss and healthy living, offering long-term support and medical expertise to make weight loss possible. Weight loss solutions range from nutritional counseling, cooking classes and fitness programs, to advanced medical weight management guided by our bariatric surgeons.

To see how bariatric care can make lives better, view weight loss success stories here.

If you choose to consult our bariatric clinics, options for medical weight loss can include prescription medications or customized programs where we closely monitor your progress and assess your progress toward better health. In many cases, patients who choose medical weight management report dramatically improved quality of life.

Although every patient is different, candidates for non-surgical weight loss options generally will meet criteria including:

  • A body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, or 27 or more with another condition such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol, or sleep apnea
  • Needing support overcoming emotional barriers to weight loss
  • Needing the supervision of a physician, along with a comprehensive health care team

Candidates for weight loss surgery generally will meet criteria including:

  • At least 18 years old
  • An unsuccessful history of trying to lose weight through diet and exercise
  • A body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, which usually means being at least 100 pounds overweight
  • A BMI of 35-39.9 along with a serious weight-related health problem (called a co-morbidity) such as diabetes, hypertension requiring multiple medications, sleep apnea, significant cardiopulmonary problems and obesity-related cardiomyopathy
