    Bariatric surgery is a digestive system surgery used to help people who are severely obese lose weight. When traditional weight-loss measures, such as diet control, exercise, and so on, have failed, severe obese patients (BMI > 40) may benefit from weight-loss surgery or bariatric surgery.

    A bariatrician is a physician who specializes in the treatment of obesity and its complications. By lowering the body fat responsible for disease processes while retaining muscle mass, bariatricians can help prevent and, more significantly, reverse obesity-related disorders.

    Endocrinologists, or hormone and metabolism specialists, can assess and treat obesity as well as weight-related disorders like type 2 diabetes. They can help you lose weight by prescribing anti-obesity drugs and monitoring your progress.

    Bariatric surgery is another name for weight-loss surgery. Surgical methods vary, but they all help you lose weight by reducing the amount of food you may eat.
