Being overweight is a risk factor for the development of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, stroke, certain types of cancers, sleep problems, and arthritis. Patients under care at the ROC have demonstrated the ability to lose significant amounts of weight over a short period of time. Follow-up care has shown that the weight loss has been sustainable. The ROC Medical Groups offer patients a comprehensive evaluation and care plan to help patients achieve and maintain a targeted healthy weight. The program includes medical monitoring, nutritional oversight and education, exercise programs, psychological support, and additional individualized treatment appropriate for each situation.
