Our Medical Weight Loss Program is 12 weeks long and focuses on weight history, barriers to weight loss, an individualized nutrition plan and a personalized exercise prescription for those with a BMI of at least 30. You will have an opportunity to meet with four medical specialists, including: a bariatrician, a dietitian, an exercise physiologist and a psychologist. Each week, you will meet with a specific specialist based on your needs and what is most beneficial to your particular treatment plan. We will provide support, education and resources to help you develop lifestyle changes that are long-lasting and become the healthiest you! Also, we are the only weight loss program in southwest Virginia that utilizes insurance coverage.
We encourage anyone who wants to get started on their weight loss journey to join members of Carilion Clinic’s Weight Loss Center team at an Information Session. In this session, you can learn more about the program we offer, obesity and lifestyle changes that you can expect to make. These information sessions are free and held twice monthly in Roanoke.
