Supervised Medications

Weight Loss Medications​

The non-surgical route to weight loss at Nova Bariatrics involves our medical weight loss program. There are many FDA approved medication for weight loss. Research has shown great outcomes and benefits with these medications on weight loss, reducing blood glucose levels, and lowering blood pressure. You will meet with one of our doctors to decide if medications are needed to help suppress appetite, improve mood, or help with insulin resistance.  For many patients these medications will likely be covered by their insurance.

We have many patients that decide weight loss surgery might not be for them as they desire the medical weight loss approach. This approach will overall include possible weight loss medications along with individualized counseling and education from a dietitian.  To learn more about our program or supervised medications schedule a consultation or call us at 469-639-0953.
