Frequently asked questions

Weight management can be very beneficial for children and families who are ready for a healthy change. We see children who:

  • Are between the ages of 2 and 17 and
  • Have a BMI greater or equal to the 95th percentile for their age
Your child’s first visit will take about 2 hours, and a parent or guardian must stay with them the entire time. We’ll get to know your child and understand their medical history, as well as your family’s habits around eating, activity, rest and self-care. From there, we’ll identify health and wellness goals and partner with you to promote the healthy futures your whole family deserves.
Medically supported lifestyle changes are always the first step. Through diet and exercise guidance, mental health support and more, we help children build healthy habits, lower the risk of chronic conditions and have a healthier childhood and future.
Families play a significant role in helping children achieve a healthy weight by setting a good example and keeping the journey positive. That’s why our weight loss programs include the whole family, as well as the child.
For many children, medically supported lifestyle changes are all it takes to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. But sometimes, lifestyle changes aren’t enough on their own, and adolescent bariatric surgery can be a safe, effective solution for children ages 13 and older.
