Strong evidence supports the idea that a combined intervention is far more effective for weight loss and maintenance than any single approach alone. Let our team of experts collaborate to help you achieve your goals.

Carrying excess weight is of particular relevance to gastroenterology because of the clearly documented impact extra weight has on numerous GI conditions, such as acid reflux, fatty liver, and the increased risk for colon polyps and colon cancer.

Our approach encourages:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Behavioral coaching
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Promoting physical activity
  • Optimizing the gut microbiome
  • Weight loss medications (when appropriate)
  • Referrals for endoscopic or surgical weight loss interventions (when appropriate)

We are closely following the latest discoveries about the role that the gut microbiome has in metabolism, as well as the role of gut hormones in appetite and weight regulation. We are eager to implement the next generation of therapies that emerge from these studies.
