Dr. Tallal M Zeni has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Skilled, Caring, and Informative

Fully informed before and after surgery by a caring involved Dr Zeni and his excellent staff. Questions were always promptly answered if I called and he took time to fully engage with me on follow up visits. Zero, I repeat Zero, complications as opposed to other acquaintances who had surgery else where. My recovery time was ahead of schedule and shorter than the same friends and family. It will be eight years in a few weeks and by remaining compliant with my instructions I am still within 10 pounds of my lowest weight post surgery. From 365 lbs down to a steady 179 to 185 lbs. I called recently at 4:45 pm with a couple questions and had a call back by 9:15 the following morning, Wow. My only regret is my insurance discontinued the follow up plastic surgery for excess tissue removal. I had plenty of assistance from Dr. Zeni's staff trying to correct this even though it really was not their issue. Clearly they valued my success physically, mentally and emotionally.
