Weight Loss Management Specialists

As the medical weight management specialists of the weight loss surgery program, Robert Kushner, MD, and Julie Roth, MD, evaluate patients both pre-operatively and post-operatively. They also attend to patients who are overweight or obese, but who do not wish to have the surgery or do not qualify for the surgical procedure. Dr. Kushner and Dr. Roth utilize a team approach that includes dieticians, psychologists and medical specialists (for high-risk patients) as part of their evaluation for medical and surgical weight management.
