About Capital Area Physician Weight & Wellness Center
Our mission at Capital Area Weight & Wellness Center is to help our patients maximize their health, fitness, energy and well-being by attaining and maintaining healthy weight loss without surgery or invasive procedures.
At Capital Area Weight & Wellness Center we utilize proven, safe and effective methods to help you lose weight and keep it off. As a trained physican, Dr. Gogineni is not limited to a particular diet or program but can adjust your therapy based upon your personal and medical needs.
Dr. Gogineni has long recognized the frustration of treating the consequences of a problem without attacking the root cause. She understands the importance of treating weight problems as the key to better health. Dr. Gogineni knows that weight disorders cause and contribute to many common serious medical problems, including hypertension, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, esophageal reflux, sleep apnea, arthritis, cancer of the breast, prostate, colon, liver, pancreas, and Alzheimer's disease in women.
A little-known complication of obesity is that many medical tests and procedures such as CAT scans and sonograms are less accurate as a result of excess fat tissue in the body.
Overweight individuals have a far higher surgical complication rate.
Mainstream medicine is well aware of the problems created by excess weight, but has focused more on the treatment of the medical consequences of excess weight rather than the weight itself.
The treatment of weight loss has been primarily through fad diets, commercial products and weight loss centers. These diets are not always safe, and there is little attention given to one's unique personal and medical needs. (The material provided on this website is for informative purposes only.
