Explore Our Weight Loss Options
Obesity is the result of a high weight-to-height ratio — or Body Mass Index (BMI). You can check your BMI using the calculator.
Non-Surgical Weight Loss
This is for people who have a BMI between 28 and 40. With a temporary balloon placement, you can safely begin losing weight without any incisions or scars.
Weight Loss Surgery
This is for people with a BMI of 35 or higher and another significant health risk factor — such as type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea or for people with a BMI over 40. For some, surgery is the right choice for a healthier life. Our experts will work with you to find the best approach.
