We then develop an individualized strategy emphasizing medical treatment along with a supportive lifestyle to help restore normal metabolic function. Though the vast majority of patients do respond to treatment the results don’t happen overnight.
We also offer treatment for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery in the past, such as gastric bypass, VSG or lap band procedures, and are struggling with weight regain or low blood sugar reactions.
Dr. Cooper is Board Certified in Obesity Medicine. She does not subscribe to the typical ‘calories in, calories out’ explanations which fail to recognize the medical complexities of weight issues and overlook the enormous body of research related to neurotransmitters and hormones that regulate weight, appetite and metabolism. Her book; The Metabolic Storm: The science of your metabolism and why it’s making you FAT and possibly INFERTILE details the scientific basis of her approach.
