- 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.

This doctor only cares about money. He suggested surgery for my condition. The diagnosis was correct, but he failed to mention there was a non surgical solution for my problem. I refused to go to surgery and asked for a second opinion. I am glad I did. In less than 4 weeks I was pain free and don't need surgery. Chung was focused on making money more than easing a patient's pain. I hate him. I was in so much pain and all he could say is to suffer through it until we can schedule a surgery. I guess that give me a lot of room to think clearly about my options, ha?
