Bariatrics is the field of medicine that focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. More than just weight loss surgery, bariatrics includes dieting, exercise, weight loss behavioral therapy and drug therapy. If other methods haven’t worked, bariatric surgery could be the solution. Bariatric (weight loss) surgery can be an important step you take to improve your life.
