Abstract

Obesity has grown to epidemic proportions in our society (1). This frightening trend is being highlighted by the news media and by periodic calls for action from government officials (2). Family practitioners and general surgeons are coming under increasing market pressures to provide medical or surgical solutions for patients who seek significant and durable weight loss. Morbidly obese patients have multiple diagnoses, and surgeons who embark on this specialty quickly realize that the safest and most effective approach to managing these patients is through a comprehensive multidiscipline program.
