The Purpose of Bariatrics
Bariatrics is the specialized medical branch that deals with the cause, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Since our inception, we have found that obesity is often a leading source of persistent pain and discomfort. While other traditional physicians may recognize this, they often send patients away with instructions to simply lose weight. Our leading and founding doctor believes that the foremost causes of obesity are often rooted in mental, spiritual, and physical processes.
While there are a number of treatment options available to patients who are obese, many of them have poor short term success and even worse long term success. Our medical team has witness first-hand the impressive results that can be achieved utilizing unique combination of treatments and therapies that are tailored for the needs of the individual.
