    Combining the science of weight loss with inspiration and advice that has dramatically improved the lives of many people, this guide offers a compelling case that change is possible and that losing weight may be the most important life change a person can make.
    Kent Sasse, MD
    Surgical weight-loss procedures have come a long way in the last several decades. Not only have the procedures become much safer and much less invasive with the advent of laparoscopic surgery, but the surgical procedures themselves have come to be accepted in the medical field as having real health benefits rather than being viewed as simply cosmetic. The benefits to weight loss have been long-documented, and the benefits from weight-loss operations are now documented as well. However, weight-loss operations are still surgical procedures, and not to be undertaken lightly.

    An excellent and reassuring guide for those considering the surgery. The book clearly outlines the surgical options, explaining each type along with its risks and possible complications, as well as expected outcomes. It also explains what to expect before, during, and after surgery, discussing selection of a surgeon, insurance coverage, the surgery itself, pain control, diet, and (rarely) re-operation.
