Medical Weight Loss & Management
Rochester Hills, MI
Obesity is a complex multifactorial disease requiring a comprehensive and multifaceted approach to care. Contemporary Obstetrics & Gynecology, PC – under the direction of Richard S. Duff M.D. at our Rochester Hills, MI office – offers a proven, physician managed weight loss program. This includes individualized treatment plans and monitored timely visits, to help ensure success.
Overweight and obesity afflicts 21% of females age 12-19 years, 34.4% of women age 20-39 years and 42.1% of women age 40-59 years. In 2014, the American Medical Association (AMA) classified obesity as a disease. In addition to being emotionally devastating, obesity is related to a large number of serious health conditions.
The good news for those suffering from obesity is that even a 5-10% sustained weight loss can improve your health and significantly reduce key risk factors such as blood pressure, decrease medication use, and significantly lower the risk of developing arthritis, sleep apnea and numerous other diseases.
Contemporary Obstetrics & Gynecology offers an established and proven medical weight loss program. By incorporating the Centers for Medical Weight Loss (CMWL) into our bariatric program, we are able to offer our patients a more efficient and effective treatment plan. Our holistic approach combines balanced nutrition, physical activity recommendations, behavior modification instruction and possible recommendation for the need of prescription obesity medication.
