Henry Ford Macomb Hospitals Surgical and Non-surgical Weight Management
programs work together to find the best option for patients.
Joe Ciacchella, left, has lost nearly 100 pounds in the 9 months since undergoing bariatric surgery. Tom Mohan, right, lost 135 pounds in 8 months after enrolling in the Center for Weight Management program. Long-term, the components of both programs are the same: patients need skills to help establish healthy behaviors and ultimately maintain weight loss over time.
We have seen many people transform their health and their lives through weight management. When patients lose weight and maintain the weight loss, they can benefit from significant improvements in the following areas:
- Blood pressure
- Cholesterol/lipid profile
- Depression and anxiety
- Energy level
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Sleep apnea and sleep experience
- Type 2 diabetes management
Whether it is bariatric surgery or participating in the Center for Weight Management (CWM) programs, patients are finding success through the dedication of both teams. The two programs exhibit a level of quality that places them at the top in their fields of care.
Whichever program you choose should help you establish healthy behaviors that help you reach and maintain your weight loss goals. We are here to help!
The staff all work together to make the patient the central part of the process. Surgery is not right for everyone so we work to guide the patients wherever they are in their journey. We can recommend the right program and educate, but the bottom line is “what is the patient ready for?”
