- 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.

The worst experience I have ever had. Doctor visit was fine, but I forgot to ask some questions before planned surgery. I was trying to contact doctor John Ganser for about 6 times in 10 days period and what I was always told is that doctor have patient and will call you right back, this never happened. My surgery was getting close and couldn't get any information from doctor. To make it worst in last week before my surgery doctor went on vacation and I couldn't get any info about what is going to be installed inside me. I cancelled surgery and went with somebody else! Much better doctor and very informative. Stay away or make sure ask everything on your visit, because this is your only one chance.
I have gone to Dr.Ganser for both my Realize band and my revision to Gastric Bypass. He and his nursing staff are top notch! He has a wonderful bedside manner, he really cares and above all he actually answers questions and answers questions without acting like he is in a hurry. His office staff can be trying at times, but he is definately worth it!
