A Weight Loss Program for You
At one time or another many of us have been affected by weight gain. Weight gain not only affects the individual, but the people closest to them. Many Americans are overweight and at risk for obesity, in fact, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation reports that “more than two-thirds of adults and one-third of children in America are obese or at risk for obesity.” Other alternatives such as meal replacement products and diet clinics can help one lose weight, but the process lacks a personal experience with a physician and extended support after the weight is lost.
We are affiliated with advanced weight loss programs, but a prolonged support system to help you succeed in both meeting and maintaining your goal weight, and creating a healthy lifestyle. People battling their weight are more likely to succeed when they commit to losing weight, and have a dedicated support team to help follow progress and track results.
Weight Loss Program
Dr. Yee has traveled to medical conferences and training sessions all over the country, to find the most effective weight loss program to offer her patients at her Little Rock, Arkansas practice. Dr. Yee’s medical weight loss programs are tailored to an individual’s needs, and use a combination of weight loss solutions with lifestyle changes to promote a healthier you! Our programs are based on the latest scientifically proven research to promote health, longevity, and weight loss. You will be medically supervised by Marina Ivanovsky, our onsite Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. Marina will develop a program of life style changes, customized diet, detox, and/or appetite suppressants.
Our weight loss program is considered more than just a medical weight loss program. Marina will consult with you on a weekly basis, monitor your progress, and provide a devoted support network for your personal weight loss journey.
During your initial consultation, you will meet with our provider to discuss physical & health issues caused by excessive weight, emotions associated with food & eating, and personal weight loss goals. Also, you will discuss program protocol, commitment, and healthy lifestyle changes that will help you achieve optimal results.
The ORBERA Two-Part Program
ORBERA® is a 12-month weight loss plan that is designed to help you take control of your weight and your lifestyle. By combining gastric balloon technology with healthy living, you can lose up to three times more weight than with diet and exercise alone.
This non-surgical treatment involves no incisions or scars. Dr. Yee will simply insert a deflated gastric balloon into your stomach through your mouth before filling it with saline solution. The balloon will remain in your stomach for six months and encourage portion control. For the entire duration of the 12-month plan, you will follow a specially designed diet and exercise program, which can extend the results of treatment for years to come.
Love Dr. Yee! She is very caring and patient, and she answered any questions I had. She has a very knowledgeable and friendly staff as well. Highly recommend her. Best of the best!Andy A.
