Obesity Medicine Clinic
The Obesity Medicine Clinic at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi is part of the Comprehensive Obesity and Metabolic Center. The center provides individualized care for patients suffering from obesity and obesity-related complications.
Led by Western-trained obesity medicine specialists, the multidisciplinary center uses evidenced-based medical practice to manage obesity and improve the health and quality of life of patients.
Who is a Candidate for Obesity Medicine?
We treat patients who have been diagnosed as overweight or obese. We specifically work with patients who do not want, or do not qualify for, surgical management but who want to optimize their weight or need guidance with weight management.
We also work with patients who need to lose weight before any planned surgery, like organ transplant surgery, hernia repair or joint surgeries either through medical or surgical approach or a combination of both.
Our Approach to Obesity Medicine
At the Obesity Medicine Clinic, we understand that every individual patient’s weight loss journey is unique to them. What works well for one patient, may not be suitable for another.
To support our patients who are struggling with obesity, we offer a patient-centered approach. This means we treat each patient based on their individual needs and preferences. We then work as a team to offer a customized weight loss plan to suit the patient’s specific metabolic and physiologic condition, to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Our team of experts work closely with patients to create an individualized plan. The plan is designed to empower patients so that they can take control of their life and adapt healthy lifestyle changes that will be a catalyst for achieving weight loss goals through medical methods.
