- 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.

THE VERY BEST! Myself, my husband, and my daughter have all been patients of Dr. Procter's over the last 6 to 7 years. I have severe and chronic medical problems. I ALWAYS call Dr. Procter, if I hear the word surgery out of any Doctors mouth! Dr. Procter is the VERY BEST surgeon in this country! His bedside manner is of the upmost professional & honest. He always makes sure his patients understand everything about their medical care, surgery, & recovery before any treatment. Dr. Procter is very caring, compassionate, & understanding. A true Blessing his is to me and my family. Sincerely, Wendy Dunn (Patient) and CW04 H. Steve Dunn Retired USMC (my Husband)
Dr Procter is hands down the BEST bariatric surgeon in GA (in my opinion in the world). I had the pleasure of having him perform my VSG procedure Oct 8th 2014. That day I truly was reborn!!! He takes his time with you, makes sure you are well taken care of with all "i's" dotted and "T's" crossed. His surgical staff is top notch as well. Starting this process I was very very ill, Dr Procter educated me, took me under his "angel wing" so to speak, and led me towards greatness and a life I felt was soooo out of reach for me to obtain along with good physical and mental health. Follow his guidelines, and take advantage of all the support that's offered to his patients pre and post surgery and you too will ask yourself "Why in the heck didn't I do this SOONER?" 200lbs lighter within less than one year of having surgery and now a marathon runner..... Life is oh so good!! I BELIEVE I BELIEVE!!! Thank you Dr. Procter and Beltline Bariatrics for giving me the education, tools, along with your gifted skillful hands & knowledge ........I wouldn't be alive today without you. ";"
I had an umbilical hernia that had grown to the size of a watermelon. My intestines were about to come out of the skin. I had no medical insurance. I went to Piedmont Hospital ER and was seen by Dr. Proctor who immediately said the next day there would be surgery done on me. His bedside manner is excellent. He cares about his patients and money and insurance is not an issue. If you have any hernia problem that no one else will take care of I recommend Dr. Charles Proctor. Not only does he do hernia repair but he also does gastric surgery. It does not matter where you are in the US if you want an expert MD who gets the job does right. Call Dr. Charles Proctor.
I live in Athens and was facing my 5th surgery In less than two years. Dr. Procter was referred to me by my last surgeon. Although I bulked about the distance, My decision to consult with Dr. Procter was one of the BEST I have ever made. Everything was so thorough and relaxed that agreed to the surgery. Best decision! Knowledge, Professionalism, thoroughness is unequaled. I KNOW I will never get another hernia and that he is truly the best and should be appreciated. Best of all, he is a happy person with a happy life and now I am a happy 'former' patient.
