About this book

Presenting detailed information on treatment of the obese patient, this handy, concise title is designed not only to educate practitioners about obesity but, most importantly, to provide practical strategies in the comprehensive approach to treating this disease.  Replete with bulleted lists and tables for easy referencing, this unique reference provides a comprehensive overview of the pathophysiology and natural history of obesity as well as a thorough review of available treatment options.  The book’s early chapters discuss the disease of obesity, its corresponding health burden on individuals and society, and the psychosocial morbidity and effect of weight loss.  Later practical, treatment-centered chapters include dietary and lifestyle strategies for weight loss, physical activity and writing an exercise prescription, pharmacotherapy approaches, perioperative care of the surgical patient, and complications of weight loss surgery, to name just several.  An indispensable, easy-to-read resource for all health professionals interested in obesity diagnosis and treatment, The Clinician’s Guide to the Treatment of Obesity is a significant contribution to the literature that will be of value to all physicians, with particular appeal internal medicine and primary care physicians, endocrinologists, cardiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and any practitioner that wishes to learn the up to date treatment strategies for the obese patient.
