Nonsurgical Weight Loss Options
Bariatric Surgery is a TOOL for weight loss – it is not a one-time fix. Surgery is not for everyone, and we are dedicated to helping our veterans lose weight in the safest and most appropriate way.
MOVE! is a national weight management program designed by the VA National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (NCP), a part of the Office of Patient Care Services to help veterans lose weight, keep it off and improve their health. http://www.move.va.gov/
MOVE! is available at most local VA sites, and if it is difficult to attend meetings due to travel expenses or work schedules, TeleMOVE! is also available to our patients.
