Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

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.

Didn't see Dr. Scott or any doctor in the hospital after surgery. Ok, gall bladder is supposed to be in/out; but sometimes it isn't and who is there to catch when there is a problem? Something's wrong with this system. Maybe it's the insurance system. Anyway, I was sent home heavily bleeding internally. I couldn't breathe when I stood up, but still I was dragged around for 10 steps to 'pass the test' to go home, while I gasped for breath. I asked what that was about; the answer was "i donno," but they put some oxygen on me right away and still sent me home. I waited the week to see Dr. Scott post-surgery as arranged, not knowing what was wrong with me. I didn't like the way the exam room was set up. It was a big room. The exam table was arranged so that you sat on it facing a wall, and the Dr. stood 6 feet away, leaning on the counter to your left. Great 'bedside' manner. He came over to look at the contusions that had formed on my lower back in two places (where the internal bleeding was pooling so much it was coming to the surface), then went running back to his counter 6 feet away. He told me that sometimes when you peel the gall bladder away from the liver a 'little' bleeding occurs. We'll take some blood (on Friday), come back Monday. Which I did. He said he was not "worried about it" that some people take a little longer to heel." Go home and rest. Meanwhile I am feeling absolutely terrible. I can't stand up in the shower because I can't breathe. I sleep all day. It's going on two weeks. Most people are back to work in two days! And he's not worried about it. I also felt he was referring to my age as part of the problem. I am a youthful, healthy 68 female - nothing going on health-wise at all. Meanwhile, I had made appointments with other Doctors because I was worried things were going wrong. Turns out the only thing going wrong was that I had lost one third of my blood !!! And he wasn't worried???? Did he know if I had stopped bleeding yet? Did he tell me I should take iron, eat dark green veggies and red meat to rebuild my blood supply? NO NO NO. He just "wasn't worried!" I'd be worried if I were you and you are considering Dr. Steven Scott as your surgeon!
