The OMA on the Science of Hope

What is the Science of Hope?

It refers to this specialized field of medicine obesity medicine where patients and providers like us experience a renewed sense of hope when faced with the challenge of obesity. Obesity medicine combines science-based medicine with individualized treatment, resulting in improved health outcomes for the patient and career satisfaction for their providers. 

The Science of Hope is empowering patients to change their lives. It's reducing their blood pressure and diabetes medications and reversing diseases thought to be irreversible. It's watching patients' lives transform as they regain the ability to walk, or run, or play with their children. It's the feeling of gratification from doing what we love to do treat patients.
