HANDBOOK OF METABOLIC AND BARIATRIC SURGERY
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.

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.
