What is clinical weight management?
Clinical weight management, also called medically-supervised weight loss, refers to weight loss that is monitored and led by a doctor who has training and expertise in safe and healthy ways to lose weight.

Why is clinical weight management used?
Clinical weight management can help a person lose stubborn weight, feel more energetic, and even overcome certain diseases. Our weight management plans are customizable so they can treat a number of weight-related issues. Some of the most common weight problems that our clinical weight management plans can help address include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Type 2 diabetes
- Obesity and depression
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)

What does clinical weight management involve?
Our clinical weight management service at the Weight Loss and Wellness Center in New Jersey involves meeting with one of our weight loss specialists for an initial consultation. During this visit, you’ll be able to express your current health concerns and future goals.
Then, your weight loss doctor will create a customized weight management plan that is unique to you and your health needs. It may include meeting with a nutritionist, dietician, or exercise counselor. In most cases, your clinical weight management services will continue long after you have reached your healthy weight. This is because maintaining the new, healthy weight is sometimes the hardest part of the weight loss process.
In addition, we offer educational support groups for patients who wish to learn more about healthy living or those who seek support in the weeks, months, and years following their weight loss treatment.
