- 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. Ray put in my lap band in 2012. On November 20th of 2017 my lap band had to be removed because it slipped. Causing all manner of problems. My new physician told me that she never does lap bands due to the problem of slippage and causing ulcers and other problems. My new doctor tells me that gastric bypass is far safer for obese people. That no one over 300lbs should get a lap band. I’m no longer that size but having the band removed was worse then getting it. Wish I had done the gastric bypass instead of the band. And then he left town without notifying his patients.
