The article discusses perioperative management of the overweight patient. It notes that the preferred operative approach for obese patients is laparoscopy, since it is linked with less postoperative pain, earlier recovery and lessened risk of postoperative pulmonary complications. It describes central-android obesity and peripheral-gynecoid obesity. It cites that endocrine conditions including Cushing's disease, hyperthyroidism and polycystic ovary syndrome are linked with obesity.
