A Safe Non-Surgical Alternative

OPTIFAST is a medically supervised weight management program that closely monitors and assesses progress towards better health and wellbeing.


Our program utilizes a full or partial meal replacement plan that transitions to a healthy meal plan, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support.


The program includes:

Meal replacement diet
Narrowing your food choices helps you work towards weight loss and management by controlling the amount and types of food you eat.

Medical supervision
Utilizes the expertise of our physician nutrition specialist to help you lose weight safely.


Lifestyle education
To help you achieve and sustain better health through nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes.


Individual and group counseling by our registered dietitian who understands your challenges.


Ongoing personalized support
Included both during and after weight loss to help you achieve and maintain success.


The OPTIFAST Program used prior to bariatric surgery can lead to significant benefits linked to decreased surgical complications. Weight loss in the pre-surgical setting results in:

  • Reduced fatty liver and decrease in liver volume

  • Decreased visceral adipose tissue

  • Reduced laparoscopic procedure time

  • Increased weight loss first year postoperatively

The program promotes preoperative weight loss through the use of the OPTIFAST formula and provides educational sessions to help patients prepare for the diet and lifestyle changes that are necessary for a successful surgical outcome.
