North Shore Cardiac Imaging Family Medical Health offers experience in helping patients with obesity. Obesity is defined as too much body fat and can make a person more susceptible to serious illness. Losing weight is key to reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Our obesity expert, Michael Cohn, MD, specializes in personalized diet and meal planning, and the treatment of hormonal conditions related to obesity. We can evaluate patients considering bariatric surgery. We also treat obesity-related conditions to improve quality of life.
Because every patient is different, understanding the cause of obesity is essential to treatment. We begin with a comprehensive evaluation, including a medical history. It will include understanding your eating and activity habits, and making the necessary modifications, whether behavioral or medicinal, to return to a healthy and sustainable weight.
