Weight management is the phrase used to describe both the techniques and underlying physiological processes that contribute to a person’s ability to attain and maintain a certain weight. Most weight management techniques encompass long-term lifestyle strategies that promote healthy eating and daily physical activity. Moreover, weight management involves developing meaningful ways to track weight over time and to identify ideal body weights for different individuals.
We are delighted to strengthen the preoperative component of our existing service by offering our patients individually targeted, specialist, non-surgical weight loss support.
The programme will be personalised to the individual patient and consist of:
- a dietary assessment and support program;
- a physical activity goal setting and activity plan;
- a medical evaluation with implementation of appropriate risk modifications;
- an assessment of psychological issues relevant to success of the program and an assessment of the patients engagement in the program.
