About this book
Obesity has become a major global problem that continues to spread in both developed and developing countries. While prevention of obesity is the best approach for the future, the current challenge is managing those who are already obese or morbidly obese, who constitute close to two thirds of the population in many countries, such as the US. Today, bariatric surgery is the only evidence-based treatment for morbid obesity with a low complication rate and acceptable results in the long-term for both weight loss and resolution of comorbidities.
This book details all the approaches used in sleeve gastrectomy (SG), offering readers the tools needed to perform the perfect SG. Each chapter focuses on the clinical problems and the indications for the sleeve, and describes the technique step-by-step (including videos), the staplers, the different sizes of bougies, reinforcement of the sutures after the sleeve and the metabolic effects of surgery.
The book also presents nontraditional SG techniques, such as the endoscopic approach, stapled sleeve and robotic technologies, discussing how to immediately identify complications and their treatment using endoscopy, laparoscopy and percutaneous image guided surgery.Further, it includes a chapter on revision surgery and revision procedures, not only from sleeve to other procedures, but also from other procedures to SG. The last section offers an overview of what the authors imagine the future holds for this bariatric procedure.
The Perfect Sleeve Gastrectomy - A Clinical Guide to Evaluation, Treatment, and Techniques is an ideal reference resource for general surgeons, bariatric surgeons, endoscopists and gastroenterologists as well as researchers with an interest in obesity and its management. It also appeals to residents and fellows, dietitians, diabetes specialist, psychotherapists and hospital administrators and quality officers.

“The book is intended to be consumed by both medical and surgical practitioners. However, the vast majority of information will be more useful to surgeons. … This is a very good book. … This book takes a necessary step toward unifying the approach of bariatric surgeons. It has a thoughtful outline and does a commendable job of addressing many of the inconsistencies and controversies on the sleeve. This should be a useful resource for the newly minted bariatric surgeon or fellow.” (Peter Nau, Doody's Book Reviews, August 28, 2020)
