- 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.

Dr. Wynn removed my gallbladder and told me that I would be able to return to a completely normal diet one week after surgery. It is six months post surgery for me and I still MUST follow this diet plan: No red meat No chocolate No fried foods No dairy (small amounts of low-fat cheese are ok) No caffeinated beverages Very little to no alcoholic beverages As much water as possible (at least 2 liters a day) Lots of vegetables and fruits Increase fiber intake Lots of lean protein (chicken/turkey/fish) Less than 9 grams of saturated fat per day If I do not follow this diet plan I have uncontrollable nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Since Dr. Wynn did not provide me with a post surgery diet plan and only did one follow-up visit, I had to create this diet plan on my own through trial and error and online research. From what I understand it takes most people a couple to several months or even up to a year to be able to eat a "normal" diet after gallbladder removal, and even then many people have to avoid certain foods. I was and am extremely disappointed with the lack of information given to me by Dr. Wynn. I do not feel she was completely honest about the risks of the surgery and she gave me almost no information about the recovery from surgery. The only time I received any post-op instructions was right after I woke up from anesthesia and was in no state to understand or remember them. They also contained no information about diet. I feel Dr. Wynn does not spend an adequate time with her patients before an operation and does not practice full disclosure. I would not recommend her to anyone for gallbladder removal.
Dr Wynn is one of the most caring doctors I have ever been associated with. She changed my life. I had my gastric by pass surgery about 8 years ago and through her guidance and care have kept ALL my weight off. I started out at a whopping 392 pounds I am currently about 120. You can't go into this thinking the surgery is a quick fix, you must follow her orders or you will find yourself right back where you started. When she tells you something like don't drink sodas listen to her. Remember, she is the expert. Good luck, you will not be sorry. She is my Guardian Angel. She continues to follow up with me through yearly checkups. More if necessary, since I am sort of on the thin side now, lol.
