Worth a read - Amber Huett-Garcia is a leader and public servant already...

She is a personal hero of mine - outspoken and brave, but always positive and engaging. Tennessee is lucky to have her, and OAC did great things with her at the helm as Chair of the Board! Obesity is a key issue, but it fits in with overall themes and commitments to equality and respect, and opportunity for all. You will love her perspective in this article. Progress needs leaders, but it mainly needs citizen action - votes, donations, support!

Duodenal Loop video on YouTube

As Presented at Video Loop #SAGES2018 - Edited version of our Duodeno-Ileostomy and simple dissection. Surgeons with RYGB skill will easily adopt. Don't need to throw away the Pylorus anymore. We only use one staple firing, so can charge much less in surgery center. Patients usually don't have to spend the night (it's a lot more comfortable than sleeve)
