Weight Loss and Metabolic Control
Can you pinch more than an inch? Our Weight Loss and Metabolic Control program at UAMS is a proven, medically supervised program for healthy weight loss. The goal of our program is to help you:
Losing weight requires effort and commitment, and UAMS understands that you need support to lose those pounds and inches. Hundreds of patients have found success with our UAMS program. That's because it is not just a diet.
As a teaching hospital committed to the health of Arkansans, we've done our research, and it shows in the results of our patients. Our staff of experts includes the only doctor in the state who is board certified to treat obesity.
We have comprehensive classes for our participants on behavior modification, nutrition and weight maintenance.
Traditional and trendy diet programs do not offer the level of expertise you will find at UAMS, which is conveniently located for residents of the greater Little Rock area. Our caring and compassionate medical specialists also can manage medical conditions that often accompany being overweight:
While your doctor can refer you to our weight loss program, we welcome you to join us without a referral. To schedule an appointment to attend a free orientation session, please call 501-603-1497.
So whether your goal is to lose a little or a lot, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan for residents of Little Rock and Arkansas who want to lose weight.
