Why are we doing this?
You are not struggling alone. Unfortunately, over 60% of all Americans are considered overweight or even obese (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Obesity is one of the leading causes of preventable death in our country. It is much more than cosmetic issue, the severe reality is that it leads to dozens of life-threatening medical conditions. These include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, asthma and obstructive sleep apnea. Consequently obesity is now treated as a disease and health hazard of epidemic proportions threatening the life of current and future generations.

We educate patients on all aspects of weight loss and help them gain the skills required to successfully manage their weight for the rest of their lives.
Our vision and practical approach
Most weight loss programs are focusing only on diet and exercise which are most certainly the cornerstones of weight management. Those programs, however, are failing to address such individual factors as current diseases and medications, lifestyle, appetite, metabolism, many other influencing factors such as genetic pre-cursors causing weight gain. Many current scientific realizations and break through discoveries available for medical specialists do not reach commercial programs. In fact you are not even a patient for most of those programs. You are a customer for them.
At MGR we have different vision and approach. As medical specialists trained in Bariatric medicine we came to realization that we need to stop treating the obesity as a failure to have will-power, we must treat it as a disease condition just like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Often genetic factors play a role in the way we gain weight. Just as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease may be linked to genetic pre-cursors, so too are weight problems and obesity. Our approach is that Obesity is a disease and we should treat it as such using all our knowledge and medical training.
Physician supervised Weight Loss in Pittsburgh- one patient at a time
Obesity is a complex disease that requires most up-to-date, scientifically sound, proven, and safe medical management available. Specially trained in bariatric medicine, obesity and weight management (preferably US Medical Bariatric Board Certified) physician on your side is the best option to have (Find a Weight Loss Doctor in PA). This is exactly what we offer. At MGR you will have one of the best medical specialists focusing on your personal weight loss.
