Weight Management Overview

Hattiesburg Clinic Weight Management provides specialized care to individuals who have an increased body mass, with the goal to improve health by addressing excess weight as a chronic disease.

Weight Management offers a support group where individuals who are struggling with their weight can come together to share their stories and get help and support in their efforts to be a healthier version of themselves. At Weight Management, our mission is to help the individual combat excess weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, ultimately improving his or her quality of life.

Hattiesburg Clinic also offers a full range of safe and effective weight loss procedures, including bariatric surgery services such as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Weight loss surgery is for patients with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40 or a BMI between 35 and 39 with at least one co-morbidity, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and degenerative disc/joint disease.
