- 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 was referred to Dr. Wohlgemuth by Dr. Via years ago who was a colleague of Dr. Wohlgemuth's wife. The doctor performed an emergency appendectomy and did follow up care through my recovery. The surgery went well with the absolute minimum scarring and rapid recovery time. He took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed them accordingly. He was professional in every sense of the word which gave me complete and utmost confidence in him. He is definitely a doctor that I would recommend to anyone needing the services he provides.
Dr. Wohlgemuth is such a caring and gentle doctor. He has been my bariatric surgeon since 2008. First with the lap-band and then a revision to the sleeve. He has always did what he knew was best for me and my situation. Had a few complications after the sleeve but always knew I was in the best hands possible. He is the best
