- 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.

Showing 5 of 12
Was very pleased with his and his staff professional attitudes. I had the gastric Bypass back in 2003. I did have and other which surgies whuch stopped me from exercise. I had lose 180 lbs. And now at a stand still. I would love to get back loosing more weight after all my surgies but I need a doctor closer to Columbus ohii that Dr.Spiers trust. If any hope would be greatly appreciated.
I had surgery with Dr Spiers in 2001. But he is now retired, cannot find where his records were forwarded. Surgery done at Community Hospital, Springfield. Contacted SRMC, who says they only keep the operation records/notes 10 years and then destroy them. HE IS RETIRED, why is he still listed as accepting patients? This site is hopelessly out of date.
