About our Weight Management Program
We strive to provide a supportive environment where patients are not judged by their weight. Having excess weight can lead to obesity, which is a disease that requires treatment. We realize each individual’s weight loss journey is very personal. At St. Rita’s, we have a team of professionals who are honored to help patients through the difficult process of weight management.
The outcomes are not about cosmetics, but about overall health and prolonged life. We provide the needed guidance for changing habits and provide long term follow-up to support long term success.
We help patients set goals and provide education on how good nutrition and physical activity will play a part in reaching their goals. Furthermore, we provide support- both individual and group support- along this journey.
We follow NIH (National Institutes of Health) guidelines for bariatric surgery, which state that care should be given in a multidisciplinary environment. That’s why we have an entire team to serve each patient, including surgeons, physicians, nurses, dietitians, psychologist and an exercise physiologist.
