- 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 chose Dr. Marcus as my doctor to treat a hernia. He recommended laparoscopic surgery for treatment which is only performed by a handful of doctor. During surgery he discovered a total of three hernias, all of which where corrected. I am now totally healed and I continue to be very thankful for choosing Dr. Marcus as my surgeon.
Dr. Marcus and his staff were absolutely outstanding. Going to the doctors always makes me very nervous, but Dr. Marcus and his staff put me at ease before I even arrived for my appointment. Dr. Marcus was very clear about the treatment I would need (Gallbladder Removal) and explained to me the options I had. I ended up having a robotic surgery and only had one small incision in my belly button. My experience was great both during surgery and after. Dr. Marcus has excellent bedside manner and was very calming for my nerves. I was up walking around the day of my surgery and was feeling back to normal within one week. I only experienced slight soreness around the incision and didn't even need pain medication. Additionally, Melissa was so helpful with the financials. I knew well in advance of my surgery what my final costs would be for the surgeon, facility, and anesthesia. She was able to explain to me the pros and cons of going in network vs out of network of my insurance. Nothing came as a surprise during the entire experience. Thank you so much to Dr. Marcus and his staff for taking such great care of me! This was by far and above my best medical experience.
Where should I begin.. Lets see should I thank the staff for being so kind, patient, understanding and for following up and following through.. Should I thank Dr. Marcus for being thorough in his explanation of my diagnosis, for making me feel safe by giving me the Peace Of Mind knowing I was in goods hands!! I'll let you decide.. Approximately 5-6 years ago I noticed a small lump on my upper back right at the base of my neck line. Like many I thought I was under stress or pulled a mussel etc. over time I noticed the lump was getting bigger and expanding and began to cause pain and stiffness in my shoulders. I scheduled and appointment with a non surgeon Doctor who informed me that I needed to see a surgeon immediately. I was referred to Dr. Marcus.. from day one Dr. Marcus treated me like a person not a patient. He took one look at my neck and immediately diagnosed me with "Lipoma" a deposit of fat under the skin ranging from 7-8 cm. He informed me that the that mass needed to be removed ASAP. I was so scared!!!!! The day of my surgery I was so terrified of the unknown but for the fact of Dr. Marcus displaying such compassion and reassuring me that he would take good care of me and that I was in good hands I probably would have postponed the surgery. The surgery was a success--Whoo Hoo..I had my first follow up visit and I am feeling Grrrrrrrrreat!!! If you need a Great Doctor-Dr. Marcus is the one.... Thank You Thank You..
