Featuring more than 160 illustrations—over 90 in full color—this volume is a complete how-to guide to the three major types of laparoscopic surgical procedures for severe obesity: laparoscopic restrictive procedures, laparoscopic restrictive/malabsorptive procedures, and laparoscopic revisional surgery. The book offers patient selection and patient counseling guidelines, addresses the psychological ramifications of this surgery, and provides step-by-step instructions on patient positioning and surgical technique for each procedure. The authors discuss the pitfalls and potential complications of each operation in detail and offer advice on how to avoid these complications.

An accompanying DVD presents detailed, narrated video demonstrating key steps in each procedure.
