UNC Lenoir Health Care is now offering medical and surgical weight-loss options which are administered by our experienced multidisciplinary weight loss management team, and offer an individualized approach to weight loss. Our medical Optifast® program, consists of 12 weeks of monitored care by our dietitian and physicians and includes a period of full meal replacements with a transition to partial meal replacements. Within our surgical program, led by our highly skilled bariatric trained surgeons, we offer the gastric sleeve surgery and gastric bypass, both through a minimally-invasive approach allowing for a shorter recovery period. We’ve incorporated exercise, health coaching and support groups into both sides of our program to provide our patients with all of the tools they need for successful weight loss and long-term weight maintenance.
