Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases (SOARD), the Official Journal of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the Brazilian Society for Bariatric Surgery, is an international journal devoted to the publication of peer-reviewed manuscripts of the highest quality with objective data regarding techniques for the treatment of severe obesity. Articles document the effects of surgically induced weight loss on obesity physiological, psychiatric and social co-morbidities. The Editorial Board includes internationally prominent individuals who are devoted to the optimal treatment of the severely obese and include internists, psychiatrists, surgeons, and nutritional experts. Manuscripts are blindly reviewed without the reviewers knowledge of the authors, institution or country of origin.
The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) is the largest society for this specialty in the world. It was organized in 1983 as an association of bariatric surgeons which emerged from the earlier University of Iowa Colloquia on bariatric surgery founded and directed by Dr. Edward E. Mason who was also the society's first president.
