- 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 experience I had with Dr. Pleatman was and continues to be very positive. He was highly recommended by a good friend of mine, I wanted to lose weight and keep it off. My surgery went very well and my weight loss goals are within normal limits for 6 months post-op. One of the best attributes I can share about Dr. Pleatman is that he very dedicated to his patients. There are not many physicians whom you can e-mail and not only get a response, but a very timely one as well. He can always be reached via his office but I feel it is very comforting to know that when you have any surgical procedure that the surgeon is available.I would highly recommend Dr. Pleatman for weight loss surgery as well as other surgical interventions that he performs.
