- 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.

I recently went to Dr. Gornichec for unexplained pain in my abdominal area that I had been dealing with for 4 years. He listened to everything I had to say. He did not minimize anything that I had experienced. He explained in detail what testing would be necessary in order to determine what the source of my pain was. He explained that although many tests had been done previously that he prefers to do his own in order to see what is needed for his patients. Dr. Gornichec performed an abdominal reconstruction surgery to repair an incarcerated incisional hernia on me. I was very nervous the morning of surgery but, Dr. Gornichec reassured me of what was to come. He is very hands on and particular about the care his patients receive. I felt a trust with him from the very first visit. I will be eternally grateful that God brought Dr. Gornichec to our state. My condition would not have been repaired without his complete dedication to being thorough. Thank-you to Dr. Gornichec and his amazing office support staff. It feels like talking to friends when you are there. You know that they truly care about each of their patients.
The skill of Dr Gornachec is undeniable. He has an awesome track record, and first and foremost that is the most important thing to me when picking a surgeon. He can be a little arrogant at times. But it is not necessarily offensive. I like a little swagger in the person that is going to be cutting me open, so for me it wasn't that big a deal. Bottom line, he gets the job done, he has a good track record and your in good hands with him.
I had my bypass performed robotically by Dr Gornichec. He is the only surgeon doing the procedure this way in Oklahoma.He did a great job and I left the hospital the next evening.His office staff is great and a lot of fun.I look forward to my follow up appointments to show them how much weight I have lost.I recommend the support groups because I always seem to learn something new from other patients.
