Semaglutide is an appetite suppressant commonly used to treat Type 2 diabetes. Recent research and FDA approval have seen its use in the treatment of obesity for long-term results. Semaglutide can be used for patients struggling with weight loss and who are unable to follow a restrictive diet and strict workout regime.

A clinical trial published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2021 tested the effect of semaglutide in combination with lifestyle intervention on patients with a BMI of 30>. Patients who took semaglutide at a dose of 2.4 mg per day lost an average of 14.9% of their body weight over 68 weeks, whereas the placebo group showed an average of 2.4% weight loss during the same time. Semaglutide injections gave 12.4% better results than just lifestyle changes.

At Interventional Orthopedics of Washington, patients receive semaglutide injections weekly, and the treatment's pricing will be based on the starting and maintenance doses. However, Dr. Silva is able to keep the prices down to a third compared to semaglutide-based brand names such as Wegovy and Ozempic.

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved drug treatment for chronic weight management which reduces appetite and increases satiety, meaning that it's possible to lose weight without feeling hungry. Dr. Silva mentions other indirect benefits of using this weight management treatment. Some of these benefits are improved blood sugar levels, reduced risk of diabetes, and reduced cholesterol.

Dr. Silva is the founder of Interventional Orthopedics of Washington and is specialized in image-guided injection therapies to find the underlying source of joint pain. The clinic also offers other innovative services like prp, stem cell therapy, and stellate ganglion block procedures.

A spokesperson for the company said: "Losing weight can feel impossible, especially when it involves relying on self-control and willpower alone. When diet and exercise haven't helped you lose weight or maintain weight loss, new medications such as semaglutide have been shown to be highly effective weight loss tools to help you reach your goals."
