Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

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.

I had my surgery almost 5 year ago. Dr. Price and his staff are awesome. They are very professional and personal. They made me feel very comfortable and were available to answer any questions that I have had. I had since move out of state and I still come see them when I come to town for my followup visits. If you are considering any type of bariatric services I would definitely recommend them.
