Obesity treatment

The goal of obesity treatment is to reach and stay at a healthy weight. To achieve this goal it might be necessary to work with a team of health professionals, including a nutritionist, dietitian, therapist or an obesity specialist.

For the very obese, diet and exercise changes may not be enough to address the problem.  Obesity surgery or bariatric surgery can help some people to lose weight by changing the way the body digests and absorbs food.
