Scientific Progress


Our understanding of Weight and Obesity physiology has changed tremendously over last few years. Your weight is affected by several neurohormonal factors that control appetite, food intake, and energy expenditure.

Obesity is known to increase the risk of several diseases such as Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood pressure and even Cancer. These are potentially preventable!


Our focus is on working with each individual patient and help them achieve sustained weight loss (and not with “fad diets”!) and decrease the risk of Obesity associated complications.

  • Have you struggled to lose weight?
  • Do you find that after you lose weight it becomes even harder to maintain that weight loss?
  • Any stressors in your life causing weight gain?


If you answered "yes" to any of these, our new Obesity & Weight Loss program may be just right for you.
