Your body mass index (BMI) is a measure of your body size and is based on your height and weight. A BMI between 25 and 30 indicates that you are overweight. A BMI over 30 indicates obesity. Carrying excess weight can put you at increased risk for or exacerbate health problems associated with many chronic medical conditions.
If you have been diagnosed with obesity and one or more conditions that increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, specialized care from cardiologists and others on our team can help you lose weight. This can help control your risk factors and reduce your chance of developing heart disease. We take care of the sickest people who need intensive, specialized care.
