Weight Control Center

The experienced team at the Beaumont Weight Control Center empowers you to develop healthy lifestyle habits, which is critical for long-term weight loss success - and best of all, it could cost less than what your spending on food now.

Our experienced team can also help you decide whether bariatric surgery, either gastric bypass or lap-band surgery, is the right decision for you. Our specialized bariatric physicians provide pre-operative medical evaluations and long-term medical follow-up. Additionally, our dietitians, psychologist, and exercise physiologists prepare you for living a healthy lifestyle after bariatric surgery.
