- 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.

Absolutely the best surgeon I have ever used. Prompt, caring, knowledgeable. The patient receives the best possible care and explanation of medical issues and Dr. Sanchez outlined 1-3 different paths to take to correct the issues. Has helped with referrals to other specialists for aftercare, further testing and advice. I would recommend her to anyone who asks.
This Dr. did a biopsy and didnt send the lab enough material to make a determination, then didnt notify the patient of an irregularity in the results, the office didnt send a copy of the report to the patient to notify of the problem. The office didnt return phone calls by the patient to find out test results and then when the patient did find out about a biopsy irregularity the dr was suppose to set up.an appt with a specialist and dropped the ball on that too. The growth is rapidly growing back in less than a month and this dr has done nothing to determine if this is a fast growing cancer and get help in a timely manner. Horrible results and you should find another dr or follow-up on everythi.g yourself to make sure your treatment is done right and you dont lose a loved one. Mistakes like this are unexcusable!!!!!!
