What is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatrics is the field of medicine focused on obesity, its causes, prevention and treatments. Bariatric surgery is divided into two different approaches to helping treat obesity: restrictive, where the stomach's size and capacity are reduced, and malabsorption, where the stomachs ability to absorb calories and nutrients is reduced.

In addition to your primary care physician, we call on our psychiatrists, dietitians, physical therapists, cardiologists, pulmonologists and surgeons to ensure your success.
