Are you looking for concise, practical answers to those questions that are often left unanswered by traditional pediatric obesity references?

This unique reference offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with pediatric obesity. The Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to pediatric obesity with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references allow readers to browse large amounts of information in an expedited fashion.

Some of the questions that are answered:
  • How can a primary care practitioner manage obesity?
  • My patients often ask me about fad diets for weight loss. What is the bottom line about fad diets - are they benign or do some have associated adverse risks?
  • What are some of the behavioral programs available for obese children and how do I choose which would be the most appropriate for my obese patients?
  • I am often asked about bariatric surgery. What are the different weight loss surgeries for pediatric patients? What are the important considerations, associated complications, and effectiveness of each type of surgery?
  • How do I get reimbursed for delivery of weight management therapies in the office?
  • Are there any effective technologies (apps, sensors) available to help pediatric patients lose weight?
  • Curbside Consultation in Pediatric Obesity: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert advice that even high-volume pediatricians will appreciate. Pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and family practitioners will benefit from the user-friendly, casual format and the expert advice contained within.
