Obesity was formally recognized as a disease by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1997, and its prevalence is increasing at epidemic proportions worldwide.
The enormous changes in human life regarding labor, exercise and diet habits have largely provoked the development of this multi-factorial disease. It has been confirmed that obesity causes many diseases, including cardiovascular disorders, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obstructive sleep apnea and degenerative joint disease. Even though many kinds of medical treatment are recommended, most therapies have not been successful in keeping sustained weight loss and controlling obesity-related comorbidity, especially in morbid obesity. Until now, only bariatric surgery has proven to be an effective procedure, and in the last 40 years, the number of bariatric procedures has been increasing exponentially in the world. This book provides an overview and updated knowledge of bariatric surgery and patient care. In it, we discussed various procedures, preoperative preparation, perioperative care and postoperative nutrition support, and the brand new, “transformed” bariatric surgery in type 2 diabetes–metabolic surgery and scarless bariatric surgery has also been included. We hope that this book will contribute to the future development of weight loss management.
