Weight Management Program
The Weight Management Program at the Cedars-Sinai Weight Loss Center allows patients to participate in an evidence-based program that blends education, support, medical monitoring and proven techniques for long-term weight loss.
While losing weight can be difficult, studies have shown that a multidisciplinary approach including dietary changes, physical activity and behavioral modification is the most effective way of achieving and maintaining weight loss.
The program helps you achieve and maintain weight loss by medically proven techniques including meal replacements, individualized dietary plans, classes, and medications as needed. Our expert team of physicians and dietitians help you not only achieve your ideal weight by addressing lifestyle changes that enable you to achieve better health.
To determine if any existing medical conditions might prevent you from participating in the program, our medical obesity physicians will conduct an initial assessment and also assist you in determining which plan is best for you.
Individuals who have achieved their weight loss goals participate in the maintenance program. This consists of weekly behavioral classes that emphasize lifestyle strategies including healthy diet, exercise, stress reduction and other behavioral tools that promote long term weight maintenance and good health. Participants continue to meet with the program physician for ongoing medical supervision and with the dietitian for individualized meal plans and support as necessary to maintain their ideal body weight.
Cost for the 12-week Active Weight Loss course is $150. Food products are available to those enrolled in the program, and are not included in the cost of the course.
Classes and food are generally not covered by insurance. Costs for the other related services (physician visits, lab tests, etc.) vary, and may be covered by your insurance plan. Our staff will work with you to help determine your coverage benefits.
