Medical Weight Loss

Obesity is a medical condition that not only restricts everyday tasks, but can also lead to a number of serious health problems, such as Type-2 diabetes, cardiac issues, and various other comorbid conditions. The level of obesity of a person is measured by the BMI or Body Mass Index. A person with a BMI of 30 or above is considered obese. As the condition leads to serious health issues, it is important to seek professional help and follow a comprehensive medical weight loss program to avoid potential health issues. Medical therapies are approved for people with a BMI over 27 if they have health problems, or a BMI over 30. We at Minimally Invasive Surgical Associates create a customized medical weight loss program to help you lose weight and maintain an ideal weight.
