- 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.

Wonderful surgeon, very nice, very patient and listens. The ladies at the front desk ugh need to be changed/ the patient receptionists. One looks like she is over age 70 has terrible people skills. AS well as the INDIAN looking lady who is very rude and rolls her eyes, asks the same questions 5 times, and treats us PAYING patients like she is the queen of England doing us a favor. Very rude, never smiles, arrogant, nasty. It boggles me that the office of bariatric surgey and doctor Yatco's office manager would have these type of people working for LENOX HILL/ NORTH SHORE LIJ. I will be complaining to the administration of the Hospital.
