In this book, Dr. Vuong offers pertinent psychological and self-improvement tips that are necessary for success after weight loss surgery, which is a rarely covered topic. Drawing on his professional experience working with obesity patients and his own personal journey for enlightenment, he has provided a concise yet profound manual for losing weight and gaining enlightenment. This book does not discuss the various weight loss surgeries, complications, insurance coverage, food tips, or the "usual" dieting tips. This book deals more with what really matters after weight loss surgery--how to change your mind and hence your perception of reality. Whether you are a newbie to weight loss surgery, a seasoned dieter, or just someone seeking enlightenment, this book is a must read. Dr. Vuong is an internationally renowned bariatric surgeon and the current director of Lovelace Bariatrics in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is recognized for his unique Patient Empowerment Program, in which he personally leads weekly educational sessions for his WLS patients. A popular speaker, Dr. Vuong starred in TLC's hit show, "900 Pound Man: A Race Against Time."
The increasing prevalence of morbid obesity has led the World Health Organization to coin the descriptive term "globesity" to reflect the worldwide nature of the problem. Providing health care to these patients, especially when surgery is required, can be extremely challenging owing to the specific needs in respect of logistics, facilities, and professional expertise. Appropriate care has to date often been unachievable and unaffordable outside of established bariatric centers, but such centers themselves usually have insufficient capacity and resources to cope with the demand among the general population. This book therefore provides a wealth of guidance and helpful tips and tricks on how to deal with obese patients within a general surgery setting. Importantly, it highlights the need for global rethinking on public health as regards resource allocation and patterns and standards of care, with the ultimate goal of improving outcomes through greater affordability.
