Abstract
Presenting detailed information on treatment of the obese patient, this handy, concise title is designed not only to educate practitioners about obesity but, most importantly, to provide practical strategies in the comprehensive approach to treating this disease. Replete with bulleted lists and tables for easy referencing, this unique reference provides a comprehensive overview of the pathophysiology and natural history of obesity as well as a thorough review of available treatment options. The book's early chapters discuss the disease of obesity, its corresponding health burden on individuals and society, the psychosocial morbidity and effect of weight loss. Later practical, treatment-centered chapters include dietary and lifestyle strategies for weight loss, writing an exercise prescription, pharmacologic approaches, perioperative care of the surgical patient, and complications of weight loss surgery, to name just several. An indispensable, easy-to-read resource for all health professionals interested in obesity diagnosis and treatment, The Clinician's Guide to the Treatment of Obesity is a significant contribution to the literature that will be of value to all physicians, with particular appeal to internal medicine and primary care physicians, endocrinologists, cardiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and any practitioner who wishes to learn the up to date treatment strategies for the obese patient.

Abstract
The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97%, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part due to the widespread use of imaging modalities that detect thyroid nodules and microcarcinomas. Concurrently, there have been a number of recent advances in surgical treatment, as well as diagnostic modalities that allow us to detect small amounts of residual local and metastatic disease. Additionally, a reexamination of past treatment regimens has led to new recommendations regarding the use of radioactive iodine, and to new therapeutic options, such as targeted therapy which have supplanted the use of more toxic chemotherapy for metastatic cancer. Multiple academic organizations have developed consensus guidelines for the management of thyroid cancer, occasionally with conflicting recommendations. In Thyroid Cancer, a renowned group of authors presents a broad overview of the pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of thyroid cancer, with an emphasis on recent evidence-based information. State-of-the-art and a significant contribution to the literature, Thyroid Cancer is an invaluable reference for endocrinologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, and surgeons who deal with head and neck cancer.
