Helping adolescents with weight loss is very different from adults. That’s why we have a program designed for adolescent children, ages 13 to 18, focusing on nutrition, physical activity and behavioral modification support for long-term weight management. If a surgical option is recommended, we offer an FDA-approved adolescent clinical trial using adjustable gastric banding.
Our adolescent program includes:
- Individual assessments
- Behavioral Education Metabolic and Body Composition testing
- Lifestyle management programs and resources
- Parent and family education
- Surgical management
- Support groups.
