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.

Today I walked in to Dr De La Cruz office feeling nervous as though I had hit a wall and would never accomplish what I desperately need. He made feel like I wasnt alone on my weight / health issues all due to my obesity. I have hopes now & left his office knowing that I had finally found a Doctor who will work with me to improve my quality of life and a chance in obtaining better health. Soon I'll be on the road to a healthier me. Thank you Dr De La Cruz. I will never feel alone in my battle for a healthier me. The struggle is real and you understood. Thank you
