The most important thing to start weight loss is to keep in mind and know the role that the weight loss doctor will play in our process. In general, a weight loss specialist has the broad capacity to explain to his patients all the available treatments. But above all the treatments that best suit the health and goals that each patient has, the provider’s knowledge is essential for the patient because they can prepare themselves and know in advance each stage of the process that is about to begin.
A weight loss specialist is a doctor who deals with the treatment of patients suffering from obesity and other types of weight-related conditions; these professionals include not only physicians but physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Their most important role is to focus on the prevention and causes of obesity.
Patients suffering from obesity often develop more serious illnesses and more delicate health problems if they do not take corrective measures in time. These diseases can include diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea. Obesity can also increase a person’s chances of developing skin ulcers or wounds, gallbladder, and respiratory diseases. The treatment provided by our weight loss specialists in New York or Puerto Rico may vary, but in almost all cases it includes exercise, diet, and other lifestyle changes and medications.
At Innova Weight Loss Solutions we have a team that specializes in accompanying patients who have decided to transform their lives. At our New York location, we have a team of professionals dedicated to helping our patients lose weight effectively and healthily.
Dr. Lawrence Ottaviano has dedicated his career to providing patients with the highest quality care for over 30 years and is board certified in both internal medicine and gastroenterology. He is affiliated with NYU Langone where he serves as a clinical Instructor of Medicine. For this and many other reasons, we can say that Dr. Ottaviano is one of the best and most knowledgeable doctors for weight loss in the entire state of New York.

In the Puerto Rico office, patients can find Dr. Federico J. Gregory who has more than 20 years of experience in medical service to the community. Throughout this time, he has carried out different studies and training at universities in Puerto Rico and New York, specializing as a gastroenterologist and becoming an Assistant Professor of Measurement at the University Hospital of Puerto Rico.
Dr. Gregory founded Innova Weight Loss Solutions, the first endobariatric procedures and services center in the country. Innova Weight Loss Solutions offers you a wide range of endobariatric procedures and support services to help patients lose weight, including OverStitch Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG), Revision Bariatric Procedures, Intragastric Balloon Placement (Orbera®), and medical and psychiatric nutrition therapy.
A weight loss specialist is dedicated to overseeing weight loss plans for each patient. In addition, it will ensure that the patient is receiving an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals as well as a beneficial caloric intake. All these specialties must include a psychological accompaniment if the problems of the obese patient are due to emotional needs.
It is important to emphasize that our weight loss doctors in New York City and Puerto Rico are fully prepared and ready to help you in your weight loss process. But it is also necessary for patients to adopt changes in their diets and lifestyle for the results to be effective and permanent.
Another important component of our team of weight loss professionals is our nurses. In some cases, some patients whose mobility is a problem due to their weight are more prone to falls and injuries. Our nurses are prepared and trained to react quickly to ensure that our patients are safe and receive the best treatment in their weight loss process.
