Supporting Physicians in the Practice of Clinical Obesity Medicine
The American Society of Bariatric Physicians 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.

The Society invites you to review the first-ever comprehensive algorithm that navigates the physician’s role in medically treating and caring for patients affected by obesity. The ASBP Obesity Algorithm—developed and written for the Society by a group of leading obesity medicine specialists—aims to give all physicians training and tools for prescribing and implementing obesity treatment plans for patients. Among these plans, changes in nutrition, exercise and behavior are included. Physicians may also recommend weight-loss medications or discuss surgical options for excess fat reduction.
