Live Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic_sleeve_gastrectomy For those, like me, who enjoy the technical part of Weight Loss Surgery, get ready. There will be a live broadcast of two bariatric procedures at 6 p.m. CT on Tuesday, January 15, on ORLive. The procedures are a laparoscopic gastric bypass and a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy What is so interesting about this is that I have received many questions about the Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure lately, and I was about to write about it, and then this came in.

Dr. Robert Marema, FACS (who happened to me the mentor of my doctor in Chile), will perform the gastric bypass procedure and Dr. Michael Perez, FACS, will perform the gastric sleeve procedure.

I have seen past broadcasts and this is a unique experience to understand those procedures.

Also I wrote about Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy here, a technique that is getting lots of attention lately.
