Bariatric Surgery is the first book of its kind to focus on the unique mental health concerns surrounding the surgical treatment of obese and severely overweight individuals. This volume provides an overview of bariatric surgery procedures and pre-surgical psychological and nutritional assessment, and guides the practitioner through important post-operative mental and physical issues, as well as long-term psychosocial management and aftercare. With an emphasis on practical clinical guidelines and strategies, yet grounded in the most up-to-date scientific study, this is the essential reference to the psychosocial issues related to bariatric surgery.
