About Dr. P
Dr. P was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio – son of Frank and Jackie Prologo and the middle of three boys. He attended Ursuline High School, John Carroll University, and The Ohio State University School of Medicine.
After Medical School Dr. P completed his post graduate training at University Hospitals Case Medical Center where he served as chief resident, then went on to Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship Training at the Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. During the subsequent years he completed Obesity Medicine training and certification - then began a uniquely impactful trajectory of academic research and clinical practice.
Dr. P has been designated as a Fellow in the Society of Interventional Radiology, and has been the recipient of numerous research awards - including awards for outstanding CT research from Philips Medical Imaging, The Radiological Society of North America Resident Roentgen Award, The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology award for distinguished clinical study, The Society of Interventional Radiology distinguished plenary presentation award, and many others. He has served on numerous national and international committees, served as invited editor for multiple peer-reviewed journals, is a council member of the true health initiative, and has published many scientific papers.
Dr. P has spent the majority of his career researching new solutions for pain and weight loss. He is most well known for pioneering a procedure to block hunger, allowing people to reach a critical point beyond which dieting was no longer a struggle - work that allowed him to define the critically acclaimed “Catching Point” beyond which diet and exercise are easier for those trying to lose weight. The Catching Point was mathematically quantified using met-minutes, and represents the point beyond which healthy living is enjoyable and easy (vs. the struggle that ends so many diets in their early phases). The Catching Point itself, and the strategy to get there are outlined in Dr. Prologo’s new book: The Catching Point Transformation. The preface for this new book can be found here.
Dr. P currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, two children, and two dogs. He can be contacted for media appearances or events here.
