Weight Loss Clinic Jonesboro, Arkansas
The number of overweight Americans currently stands at record levels. This increase in obesity in turn has created a population experiencing significant medical issues triggered or made worse by obesity like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and others. To counter and even prevent some of these weight-related problems, St. Bernards created the Center for Weight Loss in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 200, this weight loss clinic is the place to start. We offer a number of options including a complete non-surgical, medically supervised weight and health management program. Only you, together with your weight loss physician, can decide which alternative is right for you.
Weight Loss Surgery
Morbid obesity is a very complex medical disease that has serious economic, social and psychological impact. While being obese is certainly a quality of life issue, it is also the cause of a number of medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea and joint disease. Every day, thousands of people diet and exercise, but may be unable to lose weight permanently. For those patients that are 100 or more pounds over their ideal body weight, surgery is becoming recognized as the most effective treatment.
