Medical Weight Loss Management

Multidisciplinary support by the team at Blackrock WeightCare


The medical weight loss management programme is designed by our senior registered endocrinologist, Dr. Matilde Mijares Zamuner. The programme is committed to helping patients achieve and maintain weight loss success while improving their quality of life. 

Our assessment is designed to meet your goals and help you find your healthy weight, while treating any underlying weight-related medical conditions.

Obesity is a complex and chronic disease resulting from a combination of causes and factors. These causes can be genetic, hormonal, environmental, and behavioural. At Blackrock WeightCare we can offer you medical advice to help you improve your health, and find a healthy weight for you.

How Can a Medical Weight Loss Assessment Help?

A medical assessment can help identify health issues related to your weight and start appropriate treatment.

Medical Weight Loss Management of Obesity

Our goal is to individualise your care and improve your health by treating medical conditions that may be associated with being overweight. These include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Dyslipidaemia (abnormal amount of lipids in the blood)
  • Obstructive Sleep apnoea
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Liver disease
  • Help with pre-surgical weight loss

Losing weight only to then regain it later?

Weight loss and dieting may not be enough to give sustained improvement in your weight and health. Medication can play a role in helping you achieve a healthier weight but is best prescribed by a doctor with a specialist interest in weight management.

Excessive weight and obesity can impact your health

If your weight gain is causing serious health problems, limiting your ability to live life the way you would like or your mobility is suffering you may need professional help from either our medical or surgical programmes.

Uncertain about Bariatric Surgery?

If you are uncertain about surgery then a medical assessment and discussion with an endocrinologist may help.
