What is Obesity Medicine?

Dr. Amir is a board certified obesity medicine specialist. Obesity medicine is the medical practice centered around the treatment of those suffering from the conditions related to having a BMI over 30. Obesity is the most prevalent chronic illness in America today and it is quickly becoming the most prevalent chronic disease in the world. Those who are living with obesity are aware of the difficulties they face in changing their lifestyle habits. It is not as simple as “eat less and exercise more”. For many, medical interventions including a customized meal replacement plan and even weight loss medications are necessary to lose weight and keep the weight off.

If you are suffering from being overweight and obese and have tried fad diets, exercise programs and other non-medical methods without success, medical weight loss may be your key to success.
