What is Bariatric?


Bariatric is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. The term bariatrics was created around 1965 from the Greek root bar- (‘weight,’ as in barometer), suffix -iatr (‘treatment,’ as in paediatric), and suffix -ic (‘pertaining to’).

The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioural therapy approaches to weight loss, as well as pharmacotherapy and surgery.
