“This is a comprehensive overview of the current status and standard of care in bariatric and metabolic surgery. … Although targeted primarily at bariatric surgeons, gastroenterologists, and endoscopists, this book is also a useful reference for residents and fellows in training, medical students, and medical weight management clinicians. It is written by experts in the field.” (Shireesh Saurabh, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
