Handbook of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery 1st Edition


Discover the essentials involved in the management of metabolic and bariatric surgery in this easy-to-read and well-illustrated guide

The management of severe obesity and its related co-morbidities, including diabetes, has become one of the most important aspects of modern medicine. The most effective and lasting treatment for these conditions is bariatric and metabolic surgery, which has become more in demand from patients and doctors.

Handbook of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery provides a concise, accessible guide to the management of bariatric and metabolic surgery patients. It approaches its subject from both endocrine and surgical perspectives, covering pre-, peri- and post-operative requirements for commonly ­undertaken surgical procedures, as well as guidance for managing metabolic, psychological, and surgical aspects. It promises to become a valuable guide to this increasingly important field.

Handbook of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery readers will also find:

  • Over 150 full-color images and illustrations;
  • A thorough introduction to the subject of obesity medicine and the history of bariatric and metabolic surgery;
  • An editorial team with both research and practical clinical experience.
