About Obesity

Obesity is a disease that affects more than 72 million people in the United States. Being obese or overweight puts you at greater risk for health problems such as coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems and/or certain cancers.

If you struggle with weight issues, the Weigh to Success program at Midland Memorial Hospital is here to help. We provide a comprehensive program focused on your individual situation and develop a plan tailored to your needs so that you take control of obesity and your life.

Many factors can contribute to obesity including genetics, illness, psychology and lifestyle habits. At Weight to Success, we work to determine the factors contributing to your weight issues and, through on-going counseling and support groups, we work with you to improve your health by addressing the causes of your obesity.

Weigh to Success Bariatric Program

Our highly trained team is committed to providing the highest level of patient care every step of the way. If you have tried non-surgical weight loss therapies without success, weight loss surgery may be your solution. Studies demonstrate that weight loss surgery yields the longest period of sustained weight loss in patients who have failed other non-surgical therapies. For best results, we have found patients need to actively participate in a multi-disciplinary weight loss program, which includes nutritional, emotional and exercise counseling.

Weigh to Success at Midland Memorial Hospital provides a team approach to helping you reach your weight loss goals. We provide you with the education and lifelong support through our comprehensive program so that you will be successful! Your education class will teach you what you need to know prior to surgery, what to expect while in the hospital, and how to take care of yourself when you are discharged to return home.
