Dr. Prologo was born in Youngstown, Ohio. He attended Jackson Milton Middle School, Ursuline High School, and then John Carroll University. After college Dr. Prologo went on to medical school at The Ohio State University, graduating in 2001.
In 2006 he completed his Diagnostic Radiology residency at University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UHCMC), where he served as Chief Resident from 2004-2005. In 2009, he completed subspecialty training and certification in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio – after which he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at UHCMC until 2013.
In 2014 Dr. Prologo relocated with his wife Dana, daughter Gracie, and son Frankie to Atlanta GA, where he currently resides and practices. Dr. Prologo is an active member of the Society of Interventional Radiology, The American Society of Bariatric Physicians, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and the American College of Preventive Medicine, an invited editor for the International Journal of Sports and Exercise Medicine, as well as author of numerous peer-reviewed publications, presentations, and awards.
Dr. Prologo is dual-board certified in Interventional Radiology and Obesity Medicine, with a focused interest in bariatric artery embolizations (BAE) and fitness management. He is uniquely positioned through his education, career, and research to connect with patients and the public through evidence based procedural and lifestyle interventions.
The creation of the Catching Point Transformation (CPT) represents 10 years of training, research, and development to design something real that would cut through all of the smoke and mirrors. That could be given away to BAE patients as complementary therapy, and to the public as an option free from marketing translation. It follows from years of interaction personally and professionally with failing dieters and their seemingly endless desperation and frustration, as well as his own personal struggle with weight loss.
It is clear that transformation is possible only through individualization and science, an option not available to most people. This program is a service for all BAE patients, and for all the mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, spouses, and friends who are drowning in the overload of slightly tweaked diet and fitness options for sale under the auspice of a new idea. This program is based on physiological truths. It is designed to bend when your body resists so you can adapt. It stays true to your goals. It gets you somewhere, and will hopefully change your life.
