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.

Dr. AMR, was very thorough. He answered all my questions and prepared me for my gallbladder surgery. There were no surprises in regards to payment/ insurance coverage. Everything went smoothly. He has skilled hands that hardly left any marks on my belly. It’s only been two weeks! I am feeling back to normal. I truly appreciate his honesty and bedside manners. God bless you Dr. AMR. Thanks for the good news on the pathology report.

My only issues had nothing to do with the surgery at all. My negative is that I don 't feel he and his staff informed me of all the things I needed to know or all the benefits they offer. That said, the answer every question and don't make you feel rushed about it. They're friendly and warm and eager for you to succeed. The rest, he's an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I'm a difficult case, much older than most patients. He made it so my risk approached zero. I'm healing very well and living with my changes quite contentedly.

This is one of nicest doctors I have met. Unfortunately I met him while being hospitalized and needed surgery. He came in many times during my stay and even came in on a Sunday to operate on me. I would highly recommend him to everyone and would only use him if I ever needed surgery again.
