For Patients with a BMI of 27 – 34: Non-Surgical Weight Loss

The Fort Sanders Weight Management and Nutrition Center is designed for adults with a BMI of 27 or greater who need to lose moderate to significant amounts of weight. We empower individuals to achieve a healthy lifestyle through sustainable life-long changes in diet, physical activity and personal health management. Unlike many other weight loss programs, the Fort Sanders Weight Management and Nutrition Center offers a medically supervised approach including a physician, nurse practitioner, dietitian and an exercise physiologist. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, each patient is offered an individualized weight loss plan tailored to their needs.

For Patients with a BMI of 35 or More: Surgical Weight Loss

Bariatric surgery can benefit morbidly obese people or those with debilitating co-morbidities who have been unable to lose weight through other methods. You are considered morbidly obese if you:

  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 35 and are experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Cannot achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, even through medically supervised dieting
