Trusted medical weight loss treatment

At Staten Island University Hospital, our experienced staff is here to offer the treatment necessary to make lasting and healthy weight loss a reality.

We will work closely with you to customize your weight loss plan to match your healthcare needs. Our team will use a combination of dietary planning, behavioral modification, and pharmacotherapy to help you achieve your weight loss goals. We emphasize that reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is about making a lifestyle change that includes lifelong healthy dietary choices and regular physical activity.

Our treatment plans

As part of our personalized approach, we use one of four treatment plans that take into account your weight loss needs and medical history. Our plans include:

  • Calorie-controlled diet
  • Combination of food and liquid diet
  • Protein-sparing liquid diet
  • Prescription medicine and calorie-controlled diet

After meeting with our physicians, nurse practitioner, and registered dietitian, we'll personalize a weight loss plan tailored to your specific goals, and we'll create a structured follow-up schedule to keep you on track. Our follow-up visits are critical to achieving the best possible result and will help keep you committed to the process.
