This book provides a concise, state-of-the art review of the surgical treatment of metabolic syndrome and diabetes mellitus.  The volume reviews what current practices in surgery and metabolic syndrome and diabetes including the biohormonal effects of the different surgeries. Isolating the effects of the different procedures is critical to the decision tree for type of procedure selected for an individual patient. Specifically for diabetes, this textbook will provide a guide for practitioners to a tailored approach to the treatment. Areas of ongoing research that highlight the minimally invasive approach as well as incorporating what we know of the biochemical results of surgery are presented.  Results of established weight loss procedures and ongoing trials are juxtaposed against some of the more novel techniques to ascertain a best practice.
