- 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.

Surgery was most complicated and Dr. Eckstein aced my life. Needless to say since the day I originally met him I felt he had the compassion for my well being.He did everything to make me feel comfortable and the entire surgeries I went through I have become a entirely new person. Thanks to my Doctor Eckstein.
I was an emergency revision patient originally had a 15 year old gastric bypass ended up in the er with a blockage Dr Ecstein cleaned up the blockage and all the adheasions created the sleeve and now I am better than ever! I am so impressed by his talent his bedside manner and the diligence that it took to repair my problem. I wish him much more future success he deserves it.
Doctor told me before the surgery I would have two incisions. When I woke up I had six. He never came in to talk to me after the surgery. He sent two other doctors that work with him who told me that I was the difficult one but never told me what happened or why. Now I'm having complications and I moved out of state.
dr Eckstein is a fabulous surgeon after having 3 prior stomache surgeries for ventral hernia by other doctors, dr Eckstein said he would end it. dr Eckstein also said he would do the procedure laproscopy with the davinci robot, I thought to myself no way. every other surgery was open style and required at least a 5 day hospital stay post surgery with recurring hernias. the surgery was done one day and I left the hospital the next day. dr Eckstein looked me in the eye and said you will be done with hernia surgeries and I will do this laproscopy style and it happened. dr Eckstein didn't sugarcoat anything either. he said Richard, abdominal hernia surgery can be very painful. after my experience with dr Eckstein I would highly recommend him. I just had my post operation visit and dr Eckstein spent time with me and asked me questions and was very thorough. also his staff was very friendly and courteous. this surgical team is the real deal
