Bariatric Medicine and Surgery
Weight-loss (bariatric) medicine focuses on physician-supervised diet and nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes, and, when appropriate, the prescription of appetite suppressants and other appropriate medications, to assist the patient in returning to a healthy weight. Bariatric Surgery is performed to alter the patient’s digestive system to limit the amount of food that can be eaten and digested. This surgery can lower the medical risks associated with obesity.
