Who is a baritrician?

A bariatrician is a licenced physician that has received a specialized, well focused training on overweight or obese patients.

Being a physician with special training in weight management has many advantages, one of which is that medical underlying causes of obesity will be a consideration before starting a weight management program as the treatment of such medical conditions can lead to a successful weight loss.

The other issue is that patients with medical problems associated with obesity such as hypertension, diabetes, etc can be better placed on medical weight management with a physician supervision.
