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.

Dr. Dickinson did my lumpectomy when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. He did an excellent job. I was very happy with my results! He is also very warm and compassionate and seemed genuinely concerned about my care. He helped me understand my options, answered my questions and made sure he didn't leave until I had all the information I needed/wanted. He called me personally with biopsy results. Some staff can come off a bit lukewarm (certainly not all) so I wish they would remember that many of us are scared and don't want to be going through surgery (whether for cancer or other reasons).
I have been Dr. Dickinson's patient several times and he is truly a caring, conscientious and skilled surgeon. He takes the time to explain and answer questions regarding procedures and treatment options. He is also willing to not operate and suggest alternative treatments if that in the patient's best interest.
