For many severely overweight men and women, weight-loss surgery is often the best and safest option for long-term weight loss. Weight-loss surgery has also proven successful in resolving or improving conditions that often accompany obesity, including diabetes, high blood pressure and depression.
The Weight Management Program at UC San Diego Health System provides specialized, structured weight management skill development through coaching, practice and feedback. We offer a clinic-based weight-loss program, as well as an at-home weight-loss program to help you meet your individual weight-loss goals.
