Healthy weight loss is a goal for many patients, specifically those confronting obesity. Effective weight reduction often involves a partnership between a highly motivated patient and a committed team of health professionals. This team may include a physician, physical and exercise therapists, dietitian, psychologist or psychiatrist, and other subspecialists, depending on the comorbidities of the individual patient.
