Obesity medicine is the field of medicine dedicated to the comprehensive care of patients with obesity.
Obesity medicine combines science-based medicine with individualized treatment, resulting in improved health outcomes for patients and career satisfaction for healthcare providers. We call this the Science of Hope because in this specialized field of medicine, patients and providers alike experience a renewed sense of hope when faced with the challenge of obesity.
Obesity medicine clinicians who are members of the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) use a comprehensive, scientific, and individualized approach to treat obesity. This approach is comprised of nutrition, physical activity, behavior, and medication—our four pillars. When combined and personalized, these four pillars of clinical obesity treatment help patients lose weight and achieve better overall health.
