Weight loss goals come in many sizes. New Jersey Bariatric Center® offers the tools and support to find your healthiest and happiest weight - no matter where you are on journey. So if you do not qualify for surgery or just are not ready to take that step, our bariatric doctors have options that fit your needs and your life.
Patients work one-on-one with our multidisciplinary team of weight loss doctors, dietitians and psychologists to customize a program that provides sustainable results. We’ll devise a program that is unique to your needs and lifestyle:
Nutrition counseling focuses on creating a base of positive behaviors and choices and is the foundation of our program. Our team evaluates your medical history, nutritional status, vitals and metabolic profile and then works with you to develop a whole-foods-based, nutrient-dense meal plan that won’t leave you feeling deprived.
Weight Loss Medication
We use FDA-approved weight loss medications as a tool to help decrease hunger and cravings while allowing time to focus developing healthy lifestyle habits. In conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet, increased physical activity and nutritional counseling, medication helps patients reach and maintain their weight loss goals.
Meal replacements assist you as you work toward weight loss by relieving you of some of the work of meal planning, while still providing balanced nutrition and hunger control. Our dietitians evaluate the products currently on the market to recommend only products that promote safe and sustainable weight loss.

Paying for Medical Weight Loss
Many patients don't realize that their health insurance may cover some or all of the cost associated with a medically supervised weight loss program. This includes Medicare, which started offering coverage for Medical Weight Loss in 2012. Our patient navigators will check with your insurance to see what is covered under your plan. For more information about Medicare's coverage, visit Medicare's Weight Loss coverage page of their website.
