Some 22 million Americans are morbidly obese. For many of them, gastric bypass surgery appears to offer the only hope of long-term weight loss. Once viewed as a radical weight-loss alternative, the surgery is becoming increasingly popular. In 2002, more than 100,000 Americans elected to have the procedure done.

Written by a medical doctor specializing in the field, Gastric Bypass Surgery is the first comprehensive book to explain and discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure. Presented in a handy question-and-answer format, the book addresses everything from candidacy for the procedure to technique to recovery to finding a doctor and more. 150 questions and answers are featured.
