Gastric Bypass Surgery: Everything You Need to Know to Make an Informed Decision
Some 22 million Americans are morbidly obese. For many of them, gastric bypass surgery appears to offer the only hope of long-term weight loss. Once viewed as a radical weight-loss alternative, the surgery is becoming increasingly popular. In 2002, more than 100,000 Americans elected to have the procedure done.
Written by a medical doctor specializing in the field, Gastric Bypass Surgery is the first comprehensive book to explain and discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure. Presented in a handy question-and-answer format, the book addresses everything from candidacy for the procedure to technique to recovery to finding a doctor and more. 150 questions and answers are featured.
