North Shore-LIJ Center for Weight Management offers programs to help you overcome the obstacles to weight loss — which include more than just unhealthy foods — while improving your overall health and wellbeing.
If you want to maintain a healthy body weight, simply shedding a few pounds on a fad diet isn’t the answer. A healthy lifestyle means making the right choices, from food options to behavior to exercise, as well as maintaining the proper weight over time.
We provide a multi-disciplinary team approach — meaning professionals with a wide range of skills — to assist you in your weight loss needs. When you join our Lifetime Weight Loss Maintenance Program, you get more than just weight loss strategies: you will receive the necessary skills to ensure that you keep the weight off.
A Personal Plan for Your Weight Loss Needs
Successful weight loss and maintenance cannot be achieved with a one-size-fits-all plan. Our unique and experienced team of experts will provide a comprehensive, personalized approach to weight loss called the Lifetime Weight Loss Maintenance Program. A typical team includes the following professionals specializing in adult and child weight management:
Your plan will include a nutritional and psychological assessment. The Center also offers ongoing support and education, including group sessions focusing on:
- Food selection and preparation
- New behaviors
- Ways to stay motivated
- Exercise consultation and training
- Stress management
- Lifestyle changes
We help each person understand the issues behind previously unsuccessful weight loss attempts, and assist them in making adjustments in their own lifestyles to resolve these issues and achieve weight loss.
A Dedicated Team of Weight Management Experts
The Center’s team is led by Willo Wisotsky, PhD, and Christine Santori, RD, CDN, CPT, and is medically managed by Maria Pena, MD. They are all experts in adult and pediatric weight management, and have assisted thousands of patients on their journey toward a healthier way of living by giving them necessary tools.
If you are ready to lose weight, we are ready to show you how. For more information on getting started, call (516) 496-2662.
