Supporting Physicians in the Practice of Clinical Obesity Medicine
The American Society of Bariatric Physicians ("ASBP") is the leading association for clinical physicians and other providers dedicated to the comprehensive medical treatment of patients affected by obesity and associated conditions. Many ASBP-member physicians also hold certification from the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
Obesity AlgorithmTM presented by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians
The Society invites you to review the first-ever comprehensive Obesity Algorithm guidelines that navigate the physician’s role in medically treating and caring for patients affected by obesity. Developed and written by a group of leading obesity medicine clinicians, the guidelines offer all physicians an overview of principles that are necessary to consider when evaluating and implementing treatment plans for patients affected by obesity. Within these plans are options for nutrition strategies, exercise prescription, behavior change, weight-loss medications and discussion of surgical options. In addition to weight loss, the algorithm places a strong emphasis on optimizing health, decreasing disease risk and improving overall quality of life.
