Wellness Q & A

Medical Weight Loss

Who needs to participate in medical weight loss before orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgeries, like total joint replacement, provide a safe, effective way to reduce joint pain and restore mobility. But if you’re overweight or obese, the risks associated with surgery might not be worth the investment.

Dr. Joiner often prescribes medical weight loss to overweight people to ensure positive treatment outcomes. Losing 10-20 pounds before orthopedic surgery reduces the chance of complications and prepares your body for recovery.

Medical weight loss is prescribed on a case-by-case basis. However, Dr. Joiner typically recommends it to those with body mass indexes (BMI) of 45 or higher.

Who can benefit from medical weight loss?

You could benefit from medical weight loss at Dr. Murray E. Joiner Jr. & Associates if you have:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Sciatica

That’s particularly true if your symptoms continue or get worse after conservative treatments like activity changes, physical therapy, and pain management injections.

Dr. Joiner typically recommends medical weight loss to patients who need to undergo orthopedic surgery.

What does medical weight loss include?

Dr. Joiner tailors medical weight loss to your needs. He could suggest:

  • Nutrition guidance
    • Eating well is crucial to successful weight loss. Dr. Joiner teaches you how to replace unhealthy, calorie-dense foods with more balanced choices. This includes a nutritious diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Activity planning (exercise recommendations)
    • Losing weight requires you to burn calories throughout the day. This means you must exercise at least 30 minutes daily, sometimes longer. Moving your body can be challenging if you’re overweight, but it’s absolutely possible. Dr. Joiner develops an activity plan that aligns with your health and physical fitness.
  • Medication management
    • Medication management uses prescription drugs to complement your weight loss efforts through diet and exercise. Like IV infusions, some medication suppresses your appetite, while others help you burn more calories.
