Episode 15: When Does Weight Loss Become a Medical Necessity?

The Right Way to Care with Kevin O'Connell

Finding the Right Resources for Our Patients

Is the need for weight loss a question of quantity or quality? In today’s episode, Kevin O’Connell speaks with Kathryn Giglia, RN, Director of the Sisters Metabolic Center for Wellness at St. Joseph Campus. Kathryn describes two different types of patients – those who have been successful at losing weight in the past but have experienced recent challenges, and those who have struggled with weight for most of their lives. 

The Sisters Metabolic Center for Wellness is a unique resource in Western New York for bariatric surgery patients, as well as those looking for medical support in their weight loss efforts. It offers a multi-disciplinary program that supports overall health and wellness, with on-site nutritionists, mental health specialists, patient navigation, and a range of rehabilitation services including physical therapy.
