Is Loop Duodenal Switch the Future of Bariatric Surgery?

Well - this doesn't have an image that I can easily upload, but it is a BIG discussion!

See Reeger's website for art (and links to all sorts of wonderful interviews!)

A couple of the best aren't even interviews - listen to "Reeger Rambles", and "the Importance of Aftercare"

Let"s get social on #Twitter! Yes, it's time to join - #obsm topic today 9EST - great intro! #obesity #diabetes #wls

I hope any of you with interest in Obesity, Diabetes, or related issues will join Twitter just to check out TODAY's CHAT starting at 9PM Eastern (that's 7pm #Utah time). The AMSBS is sponsoring a great new way to stay connected that has worked very well for other Health Topics.

DON'T BE SHY - you can just lurk and listen! It is nice to say "I'm on" just as an introduction, but not required.

Here is one useful link - Allies for Health Intro

Signing up for Twitter is super easy, also - No credit card or anything like that.

Hope to see you all there!

053 Dr Walter Medlin A Bonus Life - Podcast last year with Reeger Cortell FNP

053 Dr Walter Medlin A Bonus Life

This is more of me than I know myself.   Reeger is a great interviewer (and caregiver)

It's a long listen, but we get into some VERY important subjects.  So happy to have a record of current thoughts on issues.  As we learn, expect some of these opinions to evolve.

075 Bariatric Surgery Rules? Second visit with the wonderful Reeger Cortell FNP podcast!!!

075 Bariatric Surgery Rules? A talk with Dr Walter Medlin

I didn't say the words during this interview, as I did last time.   I have a strong inclination to the words of the great surgeon and advocate Dr Kelvin Higa... "the only rule is that there are no rules!"

This means to me that we focus only on outcomes, and do not become attached to any single approach.  If it works, we want to know why, when, and for who!  No rule is perfect for every situation...  (maybe I could go with "always be as kind as possible"!)   Hope you enjoy the podcast, or any of her awesome work - highly recommend episode 74 with Dr Randy Seeley
