Vim & Vigor - Summer 2019 - GMC - 2

PHIL'S FEATURE

HEALTHY CHANGES
THAT SHOW

GMC's weight loss and weight management
services can help kick-start your goals
Of the many beneficial and life-changing services
offered here by our numerous health experts,
some produce results that are outwardly
apparent and some don't. Services such as routine well
women's care, advanced cardiovascular testing,
comprehensive back pain treatment, even neurosurgery, treat
conditions that may not be visible to most. However, this issue
of Vim & Vigor highlights a health condition that's very visible.
The cover story focuses on actor John Goodman, his
lifelong battle with weight, and his success in shedding
more than 100 pounds. His transformation is eye-popping to say the least, and more
importantly, has put him on track to live a healthier, happier and perhaps longer life.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity is
one of America's most complex health conditions. It can cause many serious
illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, some cancers and
mental illnesses.
Often misunderstood, obesity and weight loss can be challenging and difficult. Weight
loss often isn't the result of simply deciding to eat less and exercise more. There are
physical and psychological factors involved that can be tough to navigate on one's own.
That's why Gwinnett Medical Center is proud to offer one of the most
comprehensive weight loss programs in the state at our Center for Weight
Management. This program offers a much-needed starting point for those who
have tried to combat their weight issues alone or have experienced weight loss in
the past only to regain the pounds. It sets itself apart by providing hands-on care
from a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including bariatric surgeons, physicians,
nurses, dietitians, exercise therapists and psychologists.
The services and resources available through our program, such as a clinically
proven medical weight loss program, comprehensive surgical weight loss options,
and an individualized aftercare program, are giving patients new leases on life.
With the summer months ahead of us, this may be the perfect time to pursue
your weight loss or weight management goals. Our experts are waiting to help you
get the jump-start you need to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
