Obesity is the most prevalent chronic illness our society suffers from. It is the direct cause of numerous other health problems, including cancer. Unfortunately, weight stigma is extremely prevalent among healthcare providers, which worsens patients’ self-esteem. Dr. Tendler and many people close to him have had lifelong struggles with obesity. Dr. Tendler studied Obesity Medicine for his weight loss journey, eventually becoming board certified in 2020. In 2022 he underwent a laparoscopic sleep gastrectomy. He is available to help with psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, pharmacotherapy, and brain stimulation for weight loss and weight maintenance.
