Weight Management Programs
Mercy Medical Center offers three Facilitated Weight Management Programs --for adults, adolescents and post bariatric surgery patients-- built on the foundation of its top-ratings in weight-loss surgery.
Mercy is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® designated by the American Society For Metaboloic and Bariatric Surgery.
Utilizing that expertise, weekly, ten-session Weight Management Programs are conducted by multidisciplinary teams of healthcare professionals with long experience in assisting with the lifelong commitment and lifestyle modifications required for losing excess weight and keeping it off.
The program's Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Registered Dietitians and Certified Physical Therapists focus on a broad range of issues including healthy behaviors, stress-reduction, social relationships, exercise, and prevention of relapse into old eating habits.
The program for adolescents uses the nationally-recognized SHAPEDOWN® curriculum developed at the University of California, San Francisco.
Support group sizes are limited to assure personal attention.
