Beaumont expands bariatric and weight loss program in Rochester Hills
Beaumont opens second Weight Control Center on May 29 to provide the community with bariatric and medical weight loss options
Beaumont Health System has opened a second Weight Control Center on May 29 to provide medical weight loss and bariatric surgery options for overweight and obese people. The center is located in the Beaumont Health & Wellness Center at 1555 East South Blvd. in Rochester Hills.
“Our new location will provide the community with medical and surgical options for weight loss that is close to home,” says Wendy Miller, M.D., director of Beaumont’s Weight Control Center in Royal Oak and Rochester Hills.
Beaumont’s Weight Control Center is led by a team of medical, surgical, behavioral, nutrition and exercise experts to provide weight loss solutions, support, cooking and nutrition classes. The center offers individualized, medically supervised weight loss options, as well as a Bariatric Surgery Support Program, which provides multidisciplinary education and support for surgery patients who have Lap-Band ®, gastric bypass and gastric sleeve procedures at Beaumont Hospital, Troy.
Those seeking information on how to lose weight through the Weight Control Center’s medical or bariatric surgery programs, are invited to attend a free, 60-minute seminar about the multidisciplinary approach to weight loss and living a healthier lifestyle. Beaumont’s Weight Control Center will host its first seminar at the Rochester Hills location starting June 6.
“Nearly seven in 10 adults in Michigan are either overweight or obese,” says Dr. Miller. “It’s important for people to understand that very serious health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, are linked to obesity and can be prevented.”
Studies report people who are most successful at losing weight – and keeping it off – rely on a team of professionals who offer medically supervised weight loss solutions and help.
