About this book

The majority of the obese population still does not take advantage of the available surgical possibilities. Clinical research should be oriented towards less invasive procedures that could be accepted by the mainstream. In 2012, most non-invasive bariatric techniques are still not standardized or sufficiently assessed, but they are being constantly upgraded. The purpose of this book is to spark a discussion between experts from around the world, and to gather relevant information on new technologies that will make it possible to enlarge the vision of bariatric care to a growing number of morbid obese and non-morbid obese patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book emphasizes the scope of various emerging methods and modalities in this rapidly changing field to provide more options to a greater number of obese patients. Targeted primarily at bariatric specialists, gastroenterologists, and endoscopists, the book is also a useful reference for medical weight management providers, residents in training, and medical students. … This concise and excellent book is useful reading for anyone involved in the treatment of patients facing obesity and related metabolic complications.” (Isaac Samuel, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2013)
