- 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.

My mother suffered for a few months due to having some stones in her gallbladder. But my mother and I were very concerned about having surgery since she is 83 years old, lost a lot of weight due to pain and avoid eating because of pain! but Dr. Wool did an awesome job, removing her gallbladder with laparoscopic surgery, very short recovery time. Many thanks to Dr. Wool , my mother can eat everything without experience any pain.
Dr. Wool and his practice were outstanding! They were very thuro throughout my precedure. I admired his positive attititude. Any concerns I had he helped put my mind at ease. The day of my procedure he came in and went over again what was going to take place. He communicated with my family as soon I was out and when I woke up he was there to tell me how great my surgery went! I would recommend Dr. Wool and his practice to anyone that may need to have surgery!
Dr Wool is an excellent physician and surgeon. He is very thorough and takes the right amount of time explaining everything and makes sure that all my questions are answered. He is a very careing and compassionate doctor. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone. As a matter of fact my husband was diagonsed with a perferated colon and needed surgery so I referred him to Dr Wool. My husband can be the most difficult patient and was very satisfied with Dr Wool's work. I highly recommend Dr Wool and his staff.
