- 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.

A few weeks ago, my husband had an emergency appendectomy preformed by Dr. Salimath. Both the surgery and the recovery went extremely well. Dr. Salimath was comforting, friendly, professional and very poised. The nurses spoke highly of him and continually expressed we were in great hands. We were able to speak with Dr. Salimath before the procedure, directly after, the following day and a week later, his communication was excellent and we felt as though we were well informed and in the right hands throughout the entire experience. I would have no hesitation recommending Dr. Salimath.
Dr Salmath saved my life!!! He is a very, very kind, caring doctor and LISTENS to you. He takes your health problems VERY seriously and is a magnificent surgeon. I had a very serious hiatal hernia that he repaired robotically. Recovery time was three weeks. He is not only a fantastic doctor, he is a wonderful man. My husband and myself can never thank him enough. Again he saved my life and I no longer have the horrible pain.
