At the University of Maryland Center for Weight Management & Wellness, we are committed to ensuring that patients receive the tools they need to achieve and maintain weight loss. Diet, exercise, and behavior are emphasized as crucial components in weight control.
Studies have shown that surgical and medical treatments are effective means for achieving initial weight loss. Long-term weight loss is accomplished when patients make a lifelong commitment that includes dietary changes and exercise. By embarking on a healthy lifestyle, individuals who once struggled with obesity can also reduce or eliminate conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and cholesterol that have been implicated in heart attacks, strokes, and kidney failure.
