What Is Medical Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss is a type of weight loss management program that utilizes medications and other treatments to help patients reach their goal weight. At MediZen Institute, we identify numerous factors including those related to lifestyle to help patients create a comprehensive plan that seamlessly integrates into their day-to-day, so they can shed pounds and stay fit for life. We treat losing weight as a metabolic concern, which is often exacerbated by environmental factors, to ensure long-term success tailored for each unique patient and their respective physiology.

The Benefits of Medical Weight Loss

There are numerous benefits to reaching a healthy and manageable weight for your body. Medical weight loss enables you to bypass the stigma and moral value often associated with weight loss to let yourself flourish. Benefits include:
• Comprehensive view of obesity as a metabolic disease enables long-term success

• Advanced medications allow your body to do the work

Our Medical Weight Loss Treatment Options


Semaglutide is a once-weekly injection that slows down digestion and lowers blood sugar to keep you fuller for longer. This helps your body reset how it digests and absorbs food: by acting upon a single hormone receptor in the brain, it functionally enables you to lose up to 15% of your body weight.


Tirzepatide, like semaglutide, is a once-weekly injection. However, tirzepatide acts upon two hormone receptors in the brain, shortening the time it takes for food to pass through your gut, regulating blood sugar and keeping you satiated so you can lose up to 24% of your body weight.


Phentermine is a medication that helps suppress your appetite, allowing you to lose more weight. Long trusted for medical weight loss, phentermine has been proven to work and can be used alone or as part of a broader treatment for significant results.
