Multimodal Treatment of Obesity in 2023: Lifestyle Interventions, Anti-Obesity Medications, and Bariatric Surgery 

Session moderated by Bob Wachter

When scientists discovered that GLP-1 agonists like semaglutide led to substantial weight loss, the landscape of obesity management changed dramatically. For patients with obesity, the range of treatment options – from lifestyle changes to medication to surgery to combination approaches – can be confusing and daunting. In next week’s Grand Rounds, Jonathan Carter and Diana Thiara will help us navigate the range of therapeutic options for obesity in 2023 and beyond.

Speakers:
Jonathan Carter, MD, is professor of Surgery and the program director of the Advanced GI Minimally Invasive/Bariatric Surgery Fellowship in the Division of General Surgery at UCSF Health. He is an international expert in bariatric surgery and minimally invasive advanced approaches such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery. Jonathan is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Diana Thiara, MD, is assistant professor of Clinical Medicine and the medical director of the Medical Weight Management Clinic in the Division of General Internal Medicine at UCSF Health. She has created multiple culinary medicine programs within DGIM for patients and focuses on innovative patient programs for weight management and wellness. Diana is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
