Weight Loss That Works for You
If you suffer from obesity, you know that finding the right answer for weight loss isn’t easy. We understand that losing weight is difficult and so is keeping it off. Being overweight not only harms your health, but it also affects your quality of life.
A Smarter Approach to Weight Loss
MyWeightLossHealth takes an innovative approach that coordinates and “bundles” all services needed for a successful weight loss journey. We combine Vanderbilt’s world-class medical care with a reimagined approach that delivers a better patient experience.
We offer two bundle options for patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 35: a medical weight loss bundle, and a surgical weight loss bundle that includes two procedures: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (“Gastric Sleeve”) and Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (“Gastric Bypass”). (Calculate your BMI here.)
Our goal is to deliver the right level of care to each individual. We ensure that only patients who can truly benefit from surgery are enrolled in our surgical weight loss bundle, while providing medical weight loss support as an alternative route where appropriate.
With MyWeightLossHealth, you benefit from:
A streamlined journey to weight loss.
Your personalized weight loss journey begins at enrollment and continues through your one-year follow-up. By removing insurance barriers and focusing on your needs, we help you prepare for success, whether you’re taking a medical or surgical path to a healthier weight.
A personalized experience that meets you where you are.
Our care team of nurses, dietitians, exercise physiologists and psychologists evaluate your current health conditions and address any psychological and nutritional needs for optimal success.
We partner with you to overcome obstacles such as eating habits and mental readiness. Our team helps by providing you with a better understanding of the process, ensuring you will achieve maximum benefit from your participation in the program. Along the way, we offer a combination of educational content and telehealth and in-person visits for your convenience.
A dramatic improvement to your health—and your life.
Successful weight loss leads to long-term health benefits. If you have conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea or type 2 diabetes, the improvements can be even more dramatic. Our commitment is to help you feel better, work better and live better.
