About this book

This book describes in detail the multidisciplinary management of obesity, providing readers with a thorough understanding of the rationale for a multidisciplinary approach and with the tools required to implement it effectively. The emphasis is on a translational approach, starting from basic concepts and fundamental mechanisms of the pathology and clinical morbidity. Experts in the field discuss the full range of relevant topics, including the significance of physical exercise, psychological issues, nutritional strategies, pharmacological options and bariatric surgery. Put another way, the book covers all aspects from the bench to the bedside. Physicians, scientists and postgraduate students will all find it to be invaluable in understanding the causes and optimal management of obesity, which has rapidly become a major public health problem.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book explores the various causes of obesity and treatments for those who seek help in managing their weight. … This is a useful book for all clinicians, as obesity has far-reaching implications for everyone in the practice of medicine. This is also a tremendous book for lay persons interested in finding understandable explanations about what information out there is accurate. … This is one of the best books on the subject of obesity on the market.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
