Customized Weight Management Programs
Every person’s body is different. That’s why Scripps Clinic Center for Weight Management doesn’t take a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to helping people lose weight and live healthier lives. Instead, every treatment plan is tailored to fit our patients’ unique weight management needs.
Our multidisciplinary medical weight management medical team makes our comprehensive approach to care possible. Our physicians — with the combined expertise of registered dietitians, behavioral health specialists, weight loss coaches and support staff — offer practical tips and tools to address your weight loss goals.
Unlike non-medically supervised programs that solely offer meal replacements and supplements, Scripps Clinic Center for Weight Management carefully evaluates every patient, looking for the root cause of weight gain. .
Recognized for excellence
If weight loss surgery is right for you, patients may be referred to the center’s surgical weight loss program at Scripps Green Hospital. The program is accredited by the unified American College of Surgeons (ACS)/American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). To receive this honorable designation, our program met strict criteria related to patient safety and high quality care.
Investigational therapies for weight loss
In addition to bariatric surgery, Scripps Clinic Center for Weight Management is looking for new ways to care for people with weight issues. Through collaboration with Scripps Clinic Nutrition and Metabolic Research Center, patients may have an opportunity to participate in clinical trials for medical devices and medications being tested as possible treatments for obesity, diabetes and hypertension.
