- Is your weight leading to a deterioration in your health?
- Are you concerned about your risk of developing diabetes?
- Are you finding it difficult to keep your weight down in the long term?
- Did you know that only 2 in every 10 people who are overweight are able to successfully maintain weight loss with intensive diet and exercise?
Obesity is a complex and chronic disease which needs to be diagnosed and treated in a similar way to all other complex and chronic diseases. Substantial weight loss is possible with changes in nutrition and increased exercise in 2 in every 10 people, medication in 3 in every 10 people, and surgery in 9 in every 10 people – but knowing what will work for you is difficult to assess without specialist knowledge and expertise.
At St. Vincent’s Private Hospital we offer a consultant driven weight management tailored service which assesses each patient individually and responds with a range of safe and effective treatment options following initial consultation.
Treatment options include evidence based i) diets ii) medication or iii) surgical treatment all provided by a multi-disciplinary team of dieticians, nutritionists, psychologists, physiotherapists, surgeons and physicians.
