Weight Loss Services
Medical Weight Loss Management
Medical Weight Management Specialists is part of the Department of Medicine at St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis. We take a multidisciplinary approach to managing patients with obesity, and to provide evidence-based, compassionate clinical care. The team works together to help patients lose and maintain weight loss through lifestyle intervention, medicine and surgical intervention if needed. We also work diligently with patients to lose weight before undergoing bariatric, orthopedic, abdominal and neoplastic surgeries, in effort to reduce their surgical risk, as well as having a successful long-term outcome post operatively.
Our team provides an in-depth personal assessment to evaluate the source of our patients' weight-related issues. We also address and manage weight issues associated with other chronic medical conditions, including disordered eating patterns related to craving and binging behaviors. In addition to behavioral strategies, we utilize medications and minimally invasive devices to assist in the weight loss process. Using the shared decision-making approach, which includes the patient, a personalized plan will be designed. Once the plan is established, we work closely with our patients to evaluate their response over time and make changes as needed.
