Our Approach to Treating

Obesity in Adults

NYU Langone doctors are experienced in helping people who are affected by obesity lose weight. Obesity is defined as having too much body fat relative to height. It is a serious condition that increases a person’s risk of developing a variety of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

NYU Langone has a team of weight management experts that includes internists that specialize in obesity; registered dietitians, who assist in meal planning; endocrinologists, doctors who treat hormone conditions; and bariatric, or weight loss, surgeons. These specialists work together to create a personalized plan to help you lose weight and prevent or manage obesity-related conditions.

NYU Langone’s Weight Management Program offers a wide range of evidence-based treatment options to help you lose weight, including medically supervised meal replacement with nutritional and behavioral support.
