"The book covers the entire spectrum of bariatric procedures. Each procedure is explained in detailed steps, which help as a quick refresher on uncommon bariatric procedures. Of particular importance is the illustration depicting the location of the ports, which is much better than a written description. It is best suited for residents and fellows beginning their fellowship, primarily as a refresher on the steps involved in various bariatric procedures." - Paul Jose, MBBS, MS, MRCS, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) Doody Review Services
