JumpstartMD was founded in 2007 by Drs. Conrad Lai and Sean Bourke, two Stanford-trained physicians concerned about the serious effects obesity was having on their patients. Committed to making a positive change, they introduced a new approach: a supportive, physician supervised program focused on fresh, whole foods and sustainable lifestyle change that goes beyond short-term results. They launched JumpstartMD to provide safe, swift, sustainable weight loss. JumpstartMD has quickly grown into Northern California’s largest medical weight loss and wellness practice.
Our professional staff includes experts in medicine, nutrition, psychology and physical fitness who meet individually with patients each week. Many have struggled with weight themselves and all are passionate about empowering our patients with knowledge and personal support to achieve optimized health. Since opening our first office in the East Bay, we have helped more than 20,000 people in the Bay Area transform their lives through fast, healthy weight loss.
Both of our founding physicians are Board Certified in Obesity Medicine and Diplomates of the American Board of Obesity Medicine and members of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.
