    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

    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.

Great doctor

I had gastric bypass 9 years ago and I have stretched out my stoma and put back 50 of the 183 pounds I lost but I'm still happy I did the surgery and very happy Dr. Dutson performed the surgery on me.
