Our specialized team of doctors and nurses is experienced in identifying and treating the medical complications that are associated with eating disorders. Even refeeding itself, the process during which patients begin consuming the food and nutrients they need to regain their health, can be surprisingly dangerous.

Refeeding syndrome is a condition in which potentially fatal shifts of fluids and electrolytes (body salts) occur when a starving patient begins the refeeding process. To prevent refeeding syndrome, patients need gradual calorie increases as well as close medical supervision, including frequent physical examinations and careful monitoring of fluid balance and laboratory data.

Our experienced team includes specially trained physicians and nurses and a master’s level dietitian with over 20 years of experience working with eating disorder patients. We use our expertise to help each patient through the refeeding process safely and comfortably, so they can move on to the next step in their recovery.
