ABOUT US

Obesity is a complex, chronic, treatable disease. For many patients, a multidisciplinary treatment approach consisting of surgery, medical and lifestyle interventions helps achieve a healthier, happier life.

The Massachusetts General Hospital Weight Center is a fully integrated center that supports the spectrum of needs for people of all ages seeking help with obesity and weight loss. We provide individualized, multidisciplinary consultation and innovative obesity treatment, including state-of-the-art behavioral and pharmacotherapy programs.

We are part of the Digestive Healthcare Center at Mass General, so our patients have access to specialists in obesity medicine, bariatric surgery, psychology, nutrition, endocrinology, gastroenterology and pediatrics in one location.

We believe weight and eating disorders must be treated by compassionate and knowledgeable professionals who take advantage of the latest scientific developments and tailor treatment to each patient’s needs. As part of the largest hospital-based research program in the United States, we are on the leading-edge of obesity research and our patients have access to the newest therapies and trials available.

We are committed to the lifelong care of our patients. Whether we first meet our patients as children or adults, our programs encourage close, long-term follow-up to ensure that patients achieve and maintain an improved quality of life.

Bariatric surgery is a productive choice for many patients, but it’s not always the right decision for everyone. If you are looking for a way to lose weight safely and effectively without a surgical operation, non-surgical weight loss procedures may be the best possible choice for you. At Your New Self, we’re eager to help you find your perfect fit, whether that means medical weight loss options, surgical weight loss options, or a blend of both. No matter your goals for your health, our Medical Weight Loss Clinic can help you find an approach to sustainable weight loss that’s right for you.

We are pleased to work with patients of Detroit Medical Center who are open to non-surgical weight loss options.

What Is Non-Surgical Weight Loss?

For those who want to lose weight but are not comfortable with the idea of surgery, meeting with a bariatric treatment team can often feel like a dead end. However, at Your New Self, we know that there are paths forward that don’t necessarily involve traditional weight loss surgical procedures, no matter your current weight or overall weight loss goals.
