- 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.

Dr. Pirrello is about as real and honest as they come. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering bariatric surgery. Honestly, he saved my life. He speaks to his patients like they are real people with real issues. None of the "medical speak" so common with most medical professionals. You can't go wrong with Dr. Pirrello!
Dr. Pirello and his staff are absolutely amazing! He has spent hours making sure I understood the procedure that I was having done and helping me make my decision. He is warm, caring, thorough and has a great sense of humor. His office staff has blown me away with their willingness to help. I have never had a better experience with a doctors office.
I was sent to Dr Pirello by my family practice doctor to discuss surgery for weight loss. His staff was organized and courteous. The office was clean and comfortable and the doctor was well informed and professional. He answered all of my questions and a few others I had not yet considered. I am seriously considering having this surgery now when I had never considered it before.
