Dr. Thomas W. Clark leaves no stone unturned as he guides patients on the path toward weight loss. The published author and his team at Dr. Clark’s Center for Weight Loss Success explore a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options, searching for the right fit for each client. Dr. Clark is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Bariatric Medicine as a bariatric physician, and has performed more than 4,000 weight-loss surgeries since 1994. He has assembled an experienced staff—including a former second lieutenant in the Air Force with a bachelor of science in nursing, four certified personal trainers, and nutritional coaches—to help patients achieve their goals.
In addition to offering several types of surgery, the doctor has designed a medically supervised weight-loss program that includes lab work, an eating plan, group fitness classes, and personal training. As part of his signature Weight Management University curriculum of on-location and online classes, Dr. Clark and his weight-loss clinicians perform 14 individual counseling sessions to promote progress, communicating with clients in person or via telephone, Skype, or two tin cans connected by a taut string.
