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.

My weight loss surgery was the best decision I could have ever made. Dr Bilof and his entire staff was very compassionate , professional and friendly through the entire process. I had many questions and concerns before and after my surgery. They answered all my questions. I came to them in November 2015 weighing 260 pounds. I needed a hip replacement and my orthopedic surgeon would not perform my hip surgery because I was overweight. I had my weight loss surgery March 28 2016. I lost over pounds and was cleared to have my hip replacement July 5, 2016. Today January 16, 2018 I am down to 150 pounds. I am no longer taking high blood pressure medications, I was borderline diabetic and no longer are. I was a chronic asthmatic and taking all types of steroid inhalers and on a nebulizer almost daily. I am no longer on all those medications as well. The only medication that I am taking is multi vitamins. I have never felt better. I am able to perform many activities and enjoy life. I would highly recommend Dr Michael Bilof and his team to anyone who is in need of a healthy life style.
