Bariatric Medicine & Surgery

Bariatric Medicine Surgery

Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the study and treatment of obesity, including prevention of obesity, medical and behavioral treatments for obesity, in addition to weight loss surgery.  Our multidisciplinary team treats overweight and obese patients with diet, nutrition education, exercise, behavioral therapy, medications, weight loss surgery or any combination of these treatments.  We guide you through the process of weight loss with a goal of sustaining a lower healthier weight. 

Forming a strong relationship with our bariatric team is key to identifying complex factors associated with excess body weight such as eating/exercise behaviors, medications contributing to weight gain, hormonal changes, emotional stress and environmental influences.  A sustainable healthy weight is a cornerstone of a healthy adult life and longevity.
