Abstract

Obesity disproportionately affects women, and many patients presenting at obstetric and gynecologic clinics will have, or be at risk for, obesity and its associated comorbid conditions. Given the high frequency of interaction between women and their gynecologists, this setting may be an ideal opportunity to support patients who would benefit from obesity treatment. This article describes evidence-based obesity treatment strategies, including behavioral counseling, pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery.
