Renaissance Center for Medical Weight Loss
The Renaissance Center for Medical Weight Loss (RCMWL) will teach you how to lose weight and keep it off. This program is different from other weight loss programs our Wisconsin patients have tried in the past. The RCMWL has partnered with the highly successful Center for Medical Weight Loss to provide physician-directed weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain, to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term.
The tools that medical weight loss physicians use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you find with commercial programs. First, the RCMWL uses your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress. Second, the RCMWL can prescribe safe, low-calorie diets that are specifically designed to help you lose weight while breaking the cycle of food addiction. Should you choose and if you qualify, our doctors can also prescribe an appetite suppressant for you. Finally, the RCMWL has the ability to view your weight loss and maintenance within the context of your total health profile. If you have a condition that requires medication that may be interfering with your weight loss efforts, we can consult with your primary care physician to prescribe a safe, effective alternative to lift those barriers.

Everyone is different, which is why our plastic surgeons and staff created this custom weight loss program. Your personalized plan will not be the same as anyone else’s. The basic structure of the program consists of three phases: Quick Start, Transition, and Maintenance. Within each phase there are four basic areas: food, exercise, behavioral counseling, and prescription medication. At your initial visit, you can expect to provide us with your medical history, and have a body composition analysis (BCA) to give us a total breakdown of the percentages of fat, muscle, and water in your body. Your resting metabolism and blood pressure will also be taken. We will review your medical history and BCA results, and get to know you, your goals, and your special needs. At the end of the visit, you will have a personalized plan to get your started on your weight loss goals.
"We believe Medical Weight Loss fits in with our overall approach to helping men and women Perfect Their Personal Renaissance. Patients trying to overcome weight issues will succeed with this program because they are working with our highly trained physicians and nurses who help them reach their weight loss goals", states Dr. Janssen.

In a radio interview, Dr. David Janssen explains the "how" and the "why" of Medical Weight Loss.
A real patient at the Theda Clark Surgery Center shares the details of her success with Medical Weight Loss.
"I feel alive again. I started this program after failing many others. I discovered this program when I came in to have the VNUS procedure done. I had experienced chronic knee pain which is now completely gone since losing the weight. I've lost a total of 29 pounds in 6 ½ weeks and continuing. I had been on a sleep apnea machine and since the weight came off I have not used the machine for the last two weeks. My doctors are thrilled with my progress." – Debbie
"I lost 20 pounds in six weeks without taking the prescribed medication. I feel safe being monitored by medical professionals. The metabolic scale with its weekly readouts has been a tremendous help to stay focused on the goal I have set. The program is easy to follow and convenient and has allowed me to feel better about myself." – Sherry
