Tackling obesity improves outcomes in many specialties.

See what Robard can do for yours.

Below are just some of the specialties that can benefit from Robard programs and products to facilitate obesity treatment. Our unrivaled support allows healthcare practitioners to make a profound difference in their patients’ lives.

Incorporating preoperative weight loss into your bariatric treatment plan provides numerous benefits to both patients and surgeons.

  • Reduces the size of the liver and enhances candidacy for bariatric surgery
  • Decreases operative time, improves operability, and facilitates the procedure
  • Lowers risk of surgical complications
  • Increases postoperative weight loss at one year and over the long term

Based on the ASMBS-established guidelines for medical evaluations and clearances, our perioptimization protocol for bariatric surgery includes a well-defined patient education curriculum, as well as nutrition and exercise recommendations, to help your patients and staff achieve the best outcomes.

Our Pre-Surgery Program provides the tools and structure to help your patients lose weight and establish new behaviors.

  • Proven-effective medical weight loss program
  • All-medical protocols and clinical materials
  • Nutritional meal replacement products
  • Staff implementation and ongoing training
  • Significant additional revenue source

Our Post-Surgery Program helps ensure that your patients consume optimal nutrition while continuing to lose weight postoperatively.

  • Low-volume, high-biological-value protein supplements
  • Excellent source of essential nutrients
  • Ongoing business and educational support
  • S.T.A.R.™ weight maintenance program

The incidence of coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, stroke, atrial fibrillation, and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) increases with increasing BMI.

  • Extensive weight reduction following gastrointestinal surgery reduces cardiovascular mortality.
  • Weight loss reduces blood pressure and improves insulin sensitivity and lipids – all of which reduce cardiovascular risk.

More than 90 percent of type 2 diabetics are overweight or obese.

  • Statistics show that 58 percent of diabetes is attributable to a BMI above 21.
  • Prevention and treatment of obesity is of utmost importance to help control or minimize the effects of type 2 diabetes. Studies show that metabolic control of diabetes can reduce the associated complications.
  • Studies show weight loss improves glucose control, as well as blood pressure and cholesterol, contributing to reduced medications and higher quality of life.

Offering an obesity treatment program:

  • Benefits many patients who utilize your facility – lowering their disease risk, reducing their healthcare consumption, and decreasing mortality.
  • Adds an additional billable service line for your institution.
  • Attracts new patients in need of an effective medically supervised weight loss program.

Partnering with Robard makes sense because our comprehensive, well-developed programs are designed for easy, painless implementation. Your staff will have all the support they need to effectively assist patients in losing weight and keeping it off, while minimizing the staffing hours needed to do so.

If you already have an obesity treatment program, ask yourself whether it represents a cost-effective use of your resources. If you think there may be a more efficient model available, consider contacting Robard to learn more.

Weight loss can often improve the success of conception.

  • Ovulatory dysfunction may be closely associated with obesity, and is commonly related to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
  • Weight loss may increase testosterone levels and improve sperm quality.
  • Often, a five percent weight loss will markedly improve fertility, while a 10 percent weight loss further improves the chances of pregnancy.

Excessive BMI has been found to raise patients’ risk of chronic musculoskeletal pain, osteoarthritis, joint injury, and surgical complications.

Obesity has been powerfully linked to obstructive sleep apnea, one of the most common sleep disorders, which negatively impacts cardiovascular health, mood, energy, alertness, cognition, and long-term outcomes. Reductions in neck circumference are associated with diminished frequency of sleep apnea episodes and improved overall health.
