“This new book will offer a comprehensive yet concise summary about obesity and its surgical management, making it an ideal guide for all,” Agrawal writes in the preface to the book. “The book will serve as an excellent manual for a wide range of healthcare professionals including bariatric surgeons, general surgeons, trainees, physicians, anaesthesiologists, dietitians, psychologists, radiologists and nursing staff.”

Over 150 experts from 20 countries have contributed to the book. There are 78 chapters spread across 14 sections, each with a Honorary Section Editor. The book covers all the aspects of bariatric and metabolic surgery including perioperative management, surgical techniques of common as well as newer procedures, complications and outcomes. There are dedicated sections on revisional surgery, single incision surgery and innovative endoscopic procedures. The book is well illustrated with photos and video clips along with step-by-step guidance for a complete range of bariatric procedures. Medical aspects of obesity and metabolic syndrome are included in the introductory sections, and the last two sections cover diverse topics in this exciting field of bariatric surgery.

“The book deals with the obesity epidemic, the underlying science of obesity and its health consequences. Non-surgical management of obesity is outlined, prior to an in-depth discussion of all aspects of bariatric and metabolic surgery,” writes BOMSS President, Mr Roger Ackroyd, in a foreword in the book “It describes the historical perspectives of obesity surgery, followed by a detailed discussion of patient selection and perioperative management. Not only is this textbook the perfect guide for the bariatric surgeon, but it will also act as a reference guide for physicians, family doctors and other healthcare professionals, such as dieticians and specialist nurses. This book is set to become the worldwide reference guide to obesity and bariatric and metabolic surgery.”

“The ever-increasing number of publications from across the world in the field of metabolic or bariatric surgery is an indicator of the rapid growth of this field of modern medicine,” writes current IFSO President, Professor Rudolph Weiner, in a foreword in the book. “The future of this field is extremely bright and rapid advancements likely to happen. Therefore, we can expect a second edition soon.”

“Bariatric is an area of health care that epitomizes importance of teamwork and synergy in providing optimal health care delivery. Bariatric surgery today has evolved into a highly specialised surgical discipline in the short span of a few decades,” writes IFSO past-President, Dr Pradeep Chowbey, in a foreword in the book. “The expanse and scope of this textbook is immense. I cannot think of an important and relevant subject in bariatric surgery that has not been covered. I think this textbook would serve as a useful reference book for the armchair academic, the novice, and the experienced bariatric surgeon.”
