- Bariatric Medicine
Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

I damaged my abdominal muscles hiking in the Smokey Mountains and returned home to find out I needed hernia surgery. My consultation was brief and the need for surgery was obvious. Unfortunately my experience with Johns Creek Emory was a nightmare dealing with the nursing staff who had multiple mis-communications and put me in enormous pain for hours because of it. Within a week of the surgery I had burning in my left leg. I consulted my primary care physician who told me that the surgery might have nicked a nerve (it was in the lower left of my abdomen) and I needed to go back to the surgeon. When I returned to the surgeon, he just stated that it was normal and that it would heal within a month or so. After a month, my leg was on fire. I would go throughout my days feeling like someone was holding a lighter to my inner thigh. it was excruciating. I returned to Dr Khan again and he refused to take responsibility for it and said it was likely just "normal healing". After 5 months of this burning of my thigh, the sensation slowly reduced in size and intensity until finally I just had numbness in my leg for the following year. 2 years later, I am finally healed. But the experience was horrendous and I do not recommend this surgeon or this hospital to anyone.
He is a great doctor! Unfortunately he choose to work with Emory (a MONEY HUNGRY company) My bill was around $4000. My insurance paid all but $731 and some change. I was paying $100 a month and was receiving phone calls harassing me about $531 I haven't paid fully yet? That it would go into collections! They don't care about you as the patient, they care about your money like every other place in this World. I am going to pay them off today and I will NEVER go back! Only rated 1 star because Emory doesn't deserve a great Doctor like Dr.Khan!
