- 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.

Dr. Melvin and his staff are top notch. His staff took the time to resolve a problem with my sister's insurance, making calls and sending faxs ensuring that we were able to be seen and keep the appointment. Dr. Melvin has a great bedside manner, I'm very confident in his knowledge and understanding on how to attack and speed up the healing process of my sister's long term illness. Will post more as this process takes place.
I've had him as my surgeon for many years, I came to him at the worst part of my of my life and if i hasn't i probably wouldn't be alive today. He's one of the best & brilliant, caring and fun doctors I've ever had the pleasure to be around. Who ever ends up with him as a patient, would be extremely lucky to have him. He does not rush you, he truly listens.
