Weight Loss

Medically Supervised Weight Loss

The 61 billion dollar weight loss industry is a powerful reminder that Americans are more body and health conscious than ever before. However, despite our obsessive focus on weight loss, the obesity trend continues to rise in the United States. According to a 2013 Gallup poll, the current rate of adult obesity in America is on pace to surpass all annual average obesity rates since Gallup-Healthways began gathering this information in 2008.  The obesity epidemic has had an intensely detrimental impact on the physical health, self-esteem, and appearance of Americans of all ages, genders, and ethnicities. Obesity is not simply an aesthetic problem—over time, obesity can lead to the development of serious health issues, such as: heart disease, sleep apnea, diabetes, circulatory disease, liver disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Even with the best of intentions, attempting to lose weight on your own can be very challenging, and potentially unsafe. The overwhelming selection of pills, creams, food products, and diet programs guaranteeing ‘miraculous’ weight loss results are often not only ineffective, but lack any scientific foundation and can have dangerous side effects! In light of this critical health issue, Dr. Stephen A. Rath, lead physician at Fusion Medical Spa in Ruidoso, New Mexico, decided to offer his patients the option of a medically supervised weight loss program, specifically designed to facilitate safe and successful weight loss under his direct supervision.

Supervised Weight Loss with Semaglutide/Ozempic

Fusion is now offering medically supervised weight loss with SEMAGLUTIDE/OZEMPIC®.

The obesity epidemic is a public health concern, warranting pharmacological treatments for weight management. Obesity can adversely affect physical and mental health and reduce health-related quality of life. Common complications of obesity include cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases(like type 2 diabetes), mechanical dysfunction (like musculoskeletal disorders) and sleep apnea.  Lifestyle intervention can often be insufficient in treating obesity alone. Semaglutide promotes weight loss by reducing energy intake, increasing satiety, and reducing hunger while enhancing glycemic control.
