If you are considering weight-loss surgery, you are not alone. Obesity is the most common chronic disease in the U.S. today, affecting one out of every four Americans. In this indispensable resource, Dr. Louis Flancbaum, one of the world's foremost experts on weight-loss surgery, takes you through the entire process, from presurgical evaluation to postop care. You'll find everything you need to know to get the most out of the latest groundbreaking procedures available that can radically improve your health--and your quality of life.

You'll discover:

- Why WLS is the safest treatment for patients with clinically severe or morbid obesity
- How to determine if you're a candidate for WLS
- What to look for when choosing a surgeon
- How to choose the surgical procedure that's right for you
- What to expect pre-, peri-, and postsurgery
