Bariatrics Decline as hCG for Weight Loss Explodes
“Adult obesity is continuing its relentless rise, according to a new analysis of government statistics….with two thirds of Americans are now either overweight (defined as a body-mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher) or obese (A 30-plus BMI),” reports Maia Szalavitz for MSN Health & Fitness. To address this “growing” market, more and more physicians are adding medical weight management services to their practices, and by far, the most popular option among consumers (since being showcased on the Dr. Oz Show in February 2011) is medically supervised diet programs, specifically hCG for weight loss.
Allergan’s Chairman and CEO David Pyott noted that, “Regarding the obesity intervention line, Q1 sales decreased 14.9% in dollars and 16.0% in local currencies. Overall, bariatric procedures in the U.S. market per our market research declined 12% in the first quarter year-over-year. In the U.S., we continue to suffer from lack of access for patients to LAP-BAND even if coverage in principle is available to members of commercial insurance plans. High co-pays and necessity to demonstrate failure and medically supervised diet and exercise programs are real barriers,” laments Pyott.
IAPAM’s hCG Training Helps Physicians Capture this Obesity Market
Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com), offers his analysis on the growth of hCG for weight loss. “Demand for hCG for weight loss has exploded through the showcasing of hCG in the media, as evidenced in the Dr. Oz Show program of February 22, 2011. Physicians expertly trained in the clinical and business aspects of adding hCG weight loss programs to their practices, are assured of satisfied patients, and the successful growth of their healthcare businesses.”
To support physicians in finding expert hCG training, the IAPAM offers its Physician hCG training program (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training) for doctors and other healthcare professionals. “Our Medical Weight Management with hCG has garnered great praise from the physicians who have attended,” shares Russell. He also sees the benefits in offering complementary medical weight management and aesthetic medicine treatments to patients. “The next breakthrough will be in laser assisted lipolysis. Laser liposuction paired with hCG for medical weight management will be a key growth area for physicians in 2011.”
The IAPAM has trained over 400 physicians and their staff on how to safely offer hCG to their patients, and over 7,000 patients have successfully lost weight on hCG, using the IAPAM’s exclusive hCG Protocol (based on Dr. Simeons manuscript, Pounds and Inches).
Physicians Rave about the IAPAM’s hCG Training
Physicians who have attended the IAPAM’s hCG training testify to the comprehensiveness of the program. The one year of practice support, including access to the hCG Question and Answer Expert Forum and the IAPAM’s hCG Protocol Patient Guidebook, definitely make the IAPAM’s hCG Training different than the others. “I learned how to add a successful hCG program to my practice ….. I actually [received all] the tools to get started. Wonderful, motivating, informative, specific, intellectual. The best seminar I have attended,” says a physician from Maryland after completing the IAPAM’s hCG training.
To capture this market growth, register for an upcoming Physician hCG training session. Contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 708, or visit http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training.
