Wow - what a great visit on Friday to see Dr Dan Cottam perform a laparoscopic gastric imbrication. This is a very exciting newer procedure that is probably the least invasive intervention yet. It will be some time before we have good medium and long term data though.
In the meantime, expect to see it offered in people who have a failed Lap Band, or who are reluctant to have the Gastric Bypass or Sleeve procedures.
Here is his great video - likely soon he will be performing a combination sleeve and imbrication - Slimbrication!
and here is the link to his YouTube Channel
I have also started a WMedlinMD YouTube Channel, though it currently has instructional lectures, not an updated information session. My old information session from 2007 is linked on the right side of this page, and here. Since it was on Google Video, I havent' figured out how to put it on YouTube yet...
