Griffin Hospital established its comprehensive weight loss surgery program, Griffin Bariatrics, to provide a medical solution for patients with more substantial weight loss needs. The long-term success enjoyed by Griffin Bariatrics patients is a result of excellent medical care, including the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures, combined with access to a full range of multidisciplinary services that have been assembled to support them before, during, and after their surgery.

Griffin Hospital has partnered with Medi-Weightloss Clinics, the leading physician-supervised medical weight loss program in the United States to establish a medical weight loss program in Shelton. The new Shelton Medi-Weightloss location broadens the range of weight loss services available to the community, which include weight loss surgical and support services offered through Griffin Bariatrics.
Griffin chose to partner with Medi-Weightloss Clinics because their approach is multidisciplinary and provides program participants with the education, encouragement and support necessary to make the positive lifestyle change needed for significant and long term weight loss. Griffin’s partnership with Medi-Weightloss Clinics will provide individuals with another option for weight loss and wellness which is more intensive than diet and exercise alone but less aggressive than surgery.
The Medi-Weightloss Clinics program was designed by experts in nutrition, weight loss, health and wellness. On average Medi-Weightloss Clinics patients lose 7 pounds the first week and 2 to 3 pounds each week thereafter. The program is based on a diet composed of lean protein, low carbohydrates, low fats, and low glycemic index fruits and vegetables. Clinicians individualize a treatment plan for each participant and prescribe appetite suppressants and metabolism boosters to help accelerate weight loss.
The Medi-Weightloss Clinics program is located in the Family Health Care Center at 330 Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton. Dr. Elliott Mathias, a Family Practice specialist and long time member of the hospital’s medical staff, has been appointed the clinic’s Medical Director. Dr. Mathias will be responsible for supervising the treatment plan for each participant.
