Patient Education

When someone makes the decision to lose weight, whether through weight loss management or surgery, the impact on his or her life will be significant. Houston Methodist’s team of weight management physicians, surgeons and other health care professionals provides the expert support and the right resources to ensure our patients attain weight loss goals and achieve life-long health. Our experienced staff of nutrition and weight loss specialists is trained to help patients prepare for weight loss procedures and adjust to the lifestyle and diet changes that follow.

Weight loss and management programs are available for patients who need to lose just a few pounds, for those whose health is in jeopardy and for those who simply want to get back on track. We offer Emmi® Programs, which are videos to help prepare you for upcoming procedures or manage your chronic condition, as well as healthy living tips on exercise, cooking, nutrition and general well-being.
The weight management team at Houston Methodist has additional patient resources available on weight loss procedures and answers your frequently asked questions (FAQs). An array of educational information on obesity and bariatric surgery is also available online:
