Dr. Voisine understands no two individuals gained weight for the same reason and require individual weight loss programs. Medical issues like diabetes, thyroid issues, arthritis, sleep apnea, digestive issues, and prescription medications along with emotional reasons – loneliness, stress, depression may contribute to weight gain. Conversely, Dr. Voisine understands that obesity as a medical condition may precipitate illness including diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, cholesterol (lipid) disorders, and inflammation leading to muscle and joint pain. Obesity-related pain management is of special interest to Dr. Voisine, having treated both acute and chronic pain patients with medical and interventional methods.

Because obesity is a medical condition, Dr. Voisine promotes a lifestyle-medical emphasis on treating obesity but also supports surgical intervention (eg. gastric bypass or sleeve) when appropriate. Making the decision to lose weight can be difficult. Patients have often been contemplating which direction would be best for them but are unsure of the right choice. Evidence-based research supports the fundamental base for long term successful weight loss is lifestyle modification. Dr. Voisine’s medically supervised weight loss program, Anew10, lays a strong supportive foundation for success.
“Weight loss should not be difficult. It is a product of the change that occurs when a person’s body composition evolves, like a decrease in body fat while maintaining muscle and skeletal health. Following evidence-based and scientifically sound practices allows me to focus on the cause of the problem which, in turn, leads to better weight loss. Introducing tools to help people keep the weight off and enjoy a healthier, more vibrant life contributes to our patients’ success.”
