Dr. Dana P Edwards has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

1. I have been seeing him over two years and I have stayed sick the last year and a half, he wanted to push me off on another dorctor because I wanted him to take the lap band out. I have lost about ten pounts in 27 months. Edwards has put me through why too much. Now more and more people are coming out to tell there horror story about what DR Edward has done to them. I can tell you I would take some time to find another before I put much in this doctor, I wish someone had told me three years ago about him!!!2. The wait was to long at the office and hospital in Manchester the morning of surgery he had patients ever fifteen minutes for surgery, there so much more I would like to tell!!... His bedside manner was very disrespectful to me and others at the hospital...
Dr. Edwards is a HORRIBLE doctor!! I WOULD NOT recommend this doctor to anyone. He is rude, arrogant, and incapable of making a valid diagnosis. If his diagnosis is wrong, which is typical, he belittles the patient and demands they are to blame for their procedures not being successful. If you are considering bariatric surgery go to another doctor who is competent.
