Healthy Life Bariatrics Difference
HLB is the product of 10 years of carefully listening to our patients needs and identifying the recipe for success through our patient’s experience and feedback. By understanding our patient’s struggles and applying the most effective treatment methods and tools into one program we have created the platform for success. HLB program is truly unique in bringing multiple disciplines of medicine and surgery under one roof to empower our patient to discover a healthier, happier, lifestyle. We can successfully do this by combining three different disciplines of medicine into one program. Although many programs attempt at doing this because of financial issues that balance rarely works seamlessly as in our program. These disciplines include medical weight management, surgical weight management, and psychosocial support structure. As part of the program we also provide an integrated post surgical body-contouring program to help our patients complete their journey in an affordable manner.
At the core of the program we identify obesity as a disease that requires proper evaluation, understanding, and treatment. Obesity is a disease that is poorly understood by the medical community and society. Our goal is to provide individualize, compassionate approach to the treatment of obesity under one roof. The staff at HLB have been carefully selected and educated to recognize obesity as a disease, and treat each and every patient with dignity and respect they deserve.

Healthy Life Weight, is a stable weight range that allows the body to remain in a physiologic and psychologic balances state. Most patients at this weight will find that they are not consumed by hunger and their energy level is optimized with a new sense of vitality. The recognition of this balance is a critical part of what we do at Healthy Life Bariatrics. We work with our patients to get them to their Healthy life weight and maintain their balance in that new physiologic state. This is a very sensitive part of our treatment approach, one that is often not appreciated by other programs that are driven by quantity of cases they need to perform.
