Summary
After repeated failed attempts at weight reduction through diet and exercise, surgery may be the most effective treatment for obese and morbidly obese individuals. By following the course of several men and women who undergo gastric reduction procedures, this program presents the complete process of surgical weight loss, from clinical assessment to post-operative follow-ups. Along with the case studies, doctors and surgeons discuss the physiological and social causes of obesity, criteria for surgery, and the two main techniques: gastric bypass and adjustable gastric band.
