Center for Nutrition and Weight Management
The Weight Management Clinic at Geisinger Medical Center is designed to provide patients who are suffering from obesity with assistance and treatment for weight-related problems such as diabetes, sleep apnea and high cholesterol.
Weight management is a partnership between the patient and family, doctors, nurses, nutrition and exercise specialists. And it’s a partnership we develop one patient at a time. A physician, physician assistant and registered dietitian, specializing in obesity treatment, provide initial consultation. Using individualized meal plans for various lifestyles, and wellness/fitness goals, we work with our patients on diet, exercise and behavior medication, and if appropriate, weight loss surgery.
Obesity is not a disease that’s conquered in a day, month or a year. It is a disease that must be fought everyday for the rest of one’s life. This combination of specialized healthcare professionals and individualized treatment plans ensures that each patient’s health is improving with steady weight reduction.
