Medical Weight Loss Programs
St. Joseph Health Medical Group offers several
weight loss programs designed to meet your weight loss and health needs.
Dr. Hubert customizes each program to ensure that you achieve maximum weight loss
success while maintaining your safety and health.*
Our full-meal replacement program is for people with a considerable amount
of weight to lose (more than 30 pounds).* This program is one of the most
medical weight loss programs in the world and numerous research studies have demonstrated
Morbid obesity is a life-threatening medical condition in which a person
is at least 100 pounds overweight. Many surgeons and insurance companies
require surgical candidates to participate in a meal replacement weight
loss program before undergoing surgery and our pre-surgical program is
designed to fulfill those requirements.
Weight loss medication has proven effective in long-term studies when it is used in
conjunction with medical monitoring, behavioral therapy, and nutritional
counseling. The ProMed program can be used in both active weight loss
and during maintenance programs to assist with appetite suppression and
feelings of fullness.*
ProHealth uses nutraceuticals (natural medications) and is a holistic approach to
weight loss targeted at eating the basic food groups while safely losing weight and
changing bad habits.
Long-Term Maintenance and Relapse Prevention
Above all other factors, support and a structured long-term maintenance
plan have proven to be the most effective method for helping people maintain
weight loss.* The St. Joseph Health Medical Group long-term maintenance
program is available to anyone who has completed one of our
weight loss programs.
