Reviews

“It is designed to be a thorough guide to complications in the postoperative care of bariatric surgery patients. … The intended audience includes bariatric surgeons and the entire team. … This is a strong addition to the bariatric literature. It provides an excellent review of standards of care and the studies which have led to improvements in care.” (Luke Kinsinger, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2016)
