Our Medical Weight Loss Programs
Dr. Derek Muse is board certified in obesity medicine and knows how to help patients lose weight. Advanced Medical Weight Loss is licensed to prescribe Adipex (Phentermine), Tenuate (Diethylpropion), Qsymia (Phentermine-Topiramate ER), Belviq (Lorcaserin) and Topamax (Topiramate). These appetite suppressants help you eat the proper amount of food instead of overeating.
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands (LAP BANDS) are a common way to lose weight. Dr. Muse and the staff will attach a silicon band around your stomach. This slows down food consumption and leads to less food being eaten and more weight loss.
While you try and lose weight, it’s essential to take in fewer calories than you burn during exercise and throughout the day. At Advanced Medical Weight Loss, our low-calorie diet limits patients to 800 calories a day to promote weight loss. Many of our patients can lose 2-3 pounds a week by doing this.
