Our Program: Results

Medical Bariatrics of America, affiliated with Medical Bariatrics of Lexington, has tracked in a database the average weight loss of over 14,773 patients since Jan. 2000. Because these results have proven more successful than any other commercial program or medication with documented results, they have been revealed in a series of presentations at local medical practices and at the National Weight Loss Physician programs. Patient cholesterol improvements have also been shown to be statistically better than current cholesterol medication results. It is our hope that by documenting the success of the program, insurances will begin to reimburse the medical expenses of weight loss for patients.
