Developed by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), The ASMBS Textbook of Bariatric Surgery provides a comprehensive guide of information dealing with the ever evolving field of bariatric surgery. Volume II: Integrated Health is divided into 3 sections: bariatric medicine, psychosocial and nutritional aspects of bariatric surgery. The first section deals with the psychosocial issues associated with morbid obesity. The second section deals with the role of bariatric physicians in preoperative and postoperative support of the bariatric patients. The nutritional section discusses the preoperative and postoperative nutritional support for the bariatric patient. The ASMBS Textbook of Bariatric Surgery will be of great value to surgeons, residents and fellows, bariatric physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists and integrated health members that manage the morbidly obese.

"The purpose of this volume is to elaborate on the nonsurgical areas of an integrated multidisciplinary approach to bariatric surgery such as the psychosocial, nutritional, physical activity, and medical aspects of patient management. Although the main audience for this volume is nonsurgical specialists in an integrated healthcare team (dietitians, psychologists, and physical activity specialists), it is also of value to several others, such as bariatric surgeons and extenders, fellows and residents, and other medical specialists taking care of bariatric patients." (Isaac Samuel, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
