Excess weight can put your health at risk. Obesity is a life-threatening disease affecting 1 in 3 of all adults in the United States. The Center for Advanced Weight Loss offers a comprehensive approach that includes fitness programs, nutrition counseling, medically supervised weight loss and a variety of surgical and minimally invasive options. If surgery is ultimately needed, Hunterdon Medical Center offers many options, including gastric banding, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy. All of your pre and post-operative care can be accessed through Hunterdon Healthcare.
We offer a multidisciplinary team of registered dietitians, clinical psychologists, and board-certified physicians to meet your needs and help you develop an individualized weight loss plan. Because of our comprehensive program, coordinated care, and convenient locations, the Hunterdon Healthcare System is the best choice for all of your weight loss needs.*
