    Summary: This book explores the clinical risks of obesity and how they can be prevented and resolved through vigorous treatment. The book covers the basic elements of bariatric surgery to ensure that non-specialist clinicians will be able to educate and advise patients on the treatment process. Corrections to current medical misconceptions surrounding bariatric surgery will give patients more realistic expectations of obesity treatment. This book aims to provide basic information to non-specialist general practitioners, nurses, and health care professionals, to aid in the management of obesity through lifestyle and behavioural therapy, as well as drugs and surgery. Diet, lifestyle treatments, drug therapy, dietary supplementation, and referral patterns are very different in post-operative individuals, and this book will allow patients to be given individualised treatment altered for each person's clinical needs.
