- 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.

In 2004 dr Zane perform my thyroid surgery and exploratory parathyroid surgery. He took out my normal parathyroid ( pathology report) never ever disclosed to me and the fact that he and his resident (?) Matthew Romano "butchered my neck" ( per next Kaiser surgeon), then refused to meet with me to explain what happened during that surgery. He said to Kaiser Ombudsman that "he felt uncomfortable meeting with me". He caused my disability, lied to me saying after the surgery that " I am cured". This surgeon showed in my case incompetence and unethical conduct by not disclosing the true outcome of the surgery. By the way, he did leave behind my parathyroid adenoma.
A little over five years ago I had my gastric bypass surgery which you performed on me I was weighing 402 before the surgery and today 5 years later I have stayed between 155 and 160. Thank you for giving me my life back though it has not always been an easy road with the food and things not agreeing with me I do not regret one minute meeting this man he saved my life and never made me feel bad about my self always with a smile on his face whenever I saw him. I truly believe he enjoys the work he does. Thank you DR ROBERT ZANE.
Dr. Zane has been the best thing in helping me get my life back on track. I was a complicated case, but he looked at everything that had been done previous by other doctors and seemed to be on point with what was going on with me and had a plan which nobody else could do. After my surgery I recovered quickly which even surprised him. He even performed surgery on my wife under an emergency situation and she came out fine. I do have to thank Dr.E.Burke for his dilligent research and recommendation to refer us to Dr. Zane.
