Lexington Women's Health

Weight Loss Program


Our program was initially designed to help our patients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) lose and maintain their weight. This can improve their menstrual cycles, alleviate other associated symptoms, improve their fertility and overall quality of life. We have discovered that we can achieve this for not only our PCOS population, but for all of our patients. We take a multidisciplinary approach to managing our patients with obesity, and provide evidence-based, compassionate clinical care.

Our Approach

Research has shown that obesity is the result of numerous factors. It can also cause many health-related conditions; such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, cancer and arthritis. We provide an indepth personal assessment to evaluate the source of your weight-related issues. We also screen and provide solutions for factors that may have contributed to your weight gain, including medications, sleep disorders, and abnormal eating behaviors.

Our providers coordinate care with nutritionists, dietitians, and bariatric surgeons to help patients lose and maintain their weight loss through lifestyle intervention, medicine, and surgical intervention when appropriate. Using the shared decision-making approach, which includes the patient, a personalized plan will be designed.

Once the plan is established, we work with you closely and evaluate your response over time, making changes as needed. Follow up is provided in person on a monthly basis.
