Surgical Weight Loss Non-Surgical Weight Loss Anti-Aging Medicine Nutrient & Hormone Testing Healthy Eating Skin Care

We are a different kind of weight loss practice. Our new name reflects the broader approach to weight loss and wellness. Weight loss must include hormone balancing, if needed, supplementation to correct micronutrient deficiencies, and a healthy diet. Without this combination, weight loss cannot be adequately achieved. If healthy aging is your goal, specialized lab testing will provide us the key to help get you back to an energized state of well-being.

A New Life, A New You:

If you struggle with obesity, weight-loss surgery or non-surgical (medical) weight loss may be an option. Because of the serious health risks that accompany obesity such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and premature death, obesity can not be ignored. Weight loss surgery is a major, life-changing procedure which should only be considered after exhausting all available options.

Surgical Weight-Loss:

Among the various weight-loss procedures, the LAP-BAND® is a very safe and effective weight-loss tool that many patients are now choosing. We can do this procedure with or without plication. If you have had a RNY gastric bypass and have regained weight, you may be a candidate for the LAP-BAND® procedure. Its benefits include:

  • lower complication rates
  • faster recovery times
  • gentler weight loss

Another new procedure, the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), might also be another consideration for weight loss. This single-stage operation:

  • is best performed on moderately obese patients
  • does not require the insertion of any foreign device into the body
  • is safe and effective for high-risk and high-BMI patients

Non-Surgical Weight-Loss:

For those looking for a non-surgical weight-loss solution, or a medical approach to anti-aging, we have a physician-supervised metabolic and wellness program that helps reduce fatigue, weight-gain and serious health risks. We have joined the founder of a cutting edge program that will help restore your life. This program works very well with LAP-BAND® patients. Visit for more information. We also offer the HCG diet as well as a prescription medication weight-loss program.

Healthy Aging:

Anti-aging medicine is a growing specialty that more people are actively seeking. Our goal is to help you age well while reducing or even eliminating frequently used medications as well as preventing future common medical problems such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. This specialty uses:

  • appropriate nutrition
  • supplementation
  • exercise
  • hormonal imbalance correction with bio-identical hormones (visit for more information)
