- 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.

Dr Wizman is a highly energetic, positive and direct physician. Dr. Wizman and I met in 2005, my surgery was in 2006 and I have been happy ever since. My loss of 200 pounds has transformed my life. My goal weight was 160-170 pounds and I am currently 120 post op. Never thought I would say I need to "gain weight," but I do 11 years post-op. Throughout the years I have had issues with nutrition and have had excellent guidance and response time from staff and Dr. Wizman directly. Curtousy and dedication is not always a common occurrence and is why I am very pleased with my relationship and recommend Dr. Wizman.
Dr. Taggar and his staff at Bariatrix are amazing. From start to finish my experience has been fantastic. I would recommend Dr. Taggar to anyone seeking bariatric surgery.
