About the book

Obesity is one of the most important preventable pandemic causes, with obesity-related diseases being common causes of death. The incidence of obesity is increasing day by day. Although many countries follow national policies regarding obesity, it has not been sufficiently prevented. In recent years, obesity surgery has been done very gradually and has gained popularity with many articles on the topic available in the literature. However, there is only a small number of sources that can be accessed regularly.

This book aims to deal with bariatric surgery from past to present and touch on the important points related to the subject. It hopes to cover not only surgeries but also complications, topics of sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass surgery, as well as other metabolic surgical procedures. The goal of the book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in bariatric surgery.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Elena Vracaric

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
