- 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 had an aweful experience with Dr. Petrotos...misdiagnosed & then a few feeble attempts to repair my hernias. Now I am constantly in pain from all the mesh that was put in me...wrong. I am stuck with them & the daily pain they cause. I am full of scar tissue from too many surgeries to repair all of his botched attempts to "fix" me. This dr has forgotten his oath of "do no harm" This practice has already let go one of their surgeons due to a few too many deaths during sugery...Find another practice & fast ! Also please get 2nd & 3rd opinions. Had I done this myself I would not be in such bad health. Greenwich hospital does not monitor their surgeons...they take no responsibility & are only concerened with looking beautiful. Not what you want in a hospital.
