Welcome to W8MD Weight Loss Centers of America.

Did you know that losing even a small amount of weight loss has many health benefits?

Studies have shown that losing just 5-10% of your weight will help you reduce risks of heart attacks, diabetes and even some cancers.

Under the direction of Dr. Prab Tumpati, W8MD Weight Loss Centers was founded a year ago because of his passion to overcome obesity and to make a difference. Dr. Tumpati has passed a written board examination in the field of Bariatric Medicine and is also Board Certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine. The doctor’s of W8MD partner with each patient to develop a custom weight management program to best meet their individual needs taking into account their medical history, lifestyle and goals.

Since weight and sleep go together, most of the W8MD centers are able to address sleep issues such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome to name a few.

And the best part of the program is that most insurance’s cover the doctor visits.  If you have a little or a lot of weight to lose and want to do it without surgery, set up fees and mandatory meal replacements or appetite suppressants, think W8MD for weight loss.

Obesity Medicine Fellowship Training

Since Obesity is a risk factor for many sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, and sleep apnea in turn can have an effect on Leptins and Ghrelins that control appetite, food intake and weight, there is an inherent association between sleep disorders and weight. Realizing this, Dr. Tumpati joined a fellowship program in the field of Obesity Medicine and has passed a written board examination in Bariatric Medicine/Obesity Medicine.
