- 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.

After Dr. Nguyen told my father in law that he had gastic cancer (which would require removal of his entire stomach), he asked what questions we had (which weren't many as we were in shock). He left the room and in paraded his team of clinical nurses, social workers and dietary specialists, which was amazing, but that alone wasn't the truly amazing part. Forty-five minutes later, after the shock started to wear off, Dr. Nguyen came back and said, "Okay. Now, what questions do you have for me." Have you ever heard of a Physician doing something so considerate, much less a world renowned, award winning Surgeon? We were amazed. We later learned that Surgeons are sent to train under Dr. Nguyen from all over the world, but we never would have known it based on his demeanor; He was confident, but without a shred of arrogance and explained everything to us in language we all easily understood. Dr. Nguyen and his team's "bedside manner" went so far beyond our expectations that it would take pages to detail it from pre-op to after-care. If you are lucky enough to have Dr. Nguyen as your surgeon, you are not good hands - I believe you are in the best hands you could be in.
