- 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.

This doc is one of the finest I have ever encountered. I have worked with many docs to assist me in finally losing my weight. After havening a rou n Y in 1987, I have finally found someone who understands the physical and emotional issues that occur with morbid obesity. He is kind, considerate and not only addresses your weight, but he is mindful of your heart. We need more Physicians with this kind of compassion.
I moved here from out of state, and I already had a band. I had a very difficult time finding a dr that would do aftercare on me because I was having "issues."Dr Lopez has a very laid back approach that I appreciate. Not the uptight physician visit that you've come to expect. His staff are very kind and treat you like a friend.I believe Dr Lopez's experience as a surgeon is the best in the business. He "fixed" me, and I'm grateful.
