Thousands of people have bariatric surgery every year — this book offers comprehensive information on obesity, weight-loss procedures and dietary strategies.

Weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to help you decrease your food intake and change the way your body handles food — resulting in significant weight loss.

This incredibly comprehensive book provides information on the many procedures that are currently available in North America, from the widely known Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAGB) to the Duodenal Switch and the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass. It looks at the causes of obesity, obesity-related problems and standard treatments. All of the benefits and risks associated with the surgery are examined, including recovery, potential long-term problems and measures of success.

The second component of the book provides the resources for healthy eating and making positive lifestyle changes, including 150 recipes that have been created with weight-loss patients in mind.
