- 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.

Looking back it seems that my fears were unfounded. When my sister was taking weight loss surgery every day two years ago, my fear of not being able to eat what I wanted were paralyzing me. I was irrational and I felt it deep inside but I let my fears lead me. A year after her surgery, 65lb weight loss as her obvious happiness put my fears to rest. I went with her surgeon Dr. Allam and had a sleeve. Now I can say my happiness matches hers and the only regrets is the year I wasted listening to my fears.
2 & 1/2 year ago I had a band placed by another surgeon. I vomited with every adjustment and when I complained I was told it is me not the band. A year later, feeling like a big failure I demanded some work up or something and was sent for x-Ray of some sort. My surgeon called and said the band slipped, I knew it wasn't me. He said he needs to fix it or take it out. I wasn't going to let h touch me again. My cousin told me about De. Allam and I went to see him, what a nice man. He fixed it and coached me with kindness and guess what, I am a success and I reached my goal.
