We began performing the Duodenal Switch in 2013 for the surgical treatment of resistant type 2 diabetes mellitus. Since then, patients have been coming from all over the U.S. to have the procedure, not just to manage their diabetes, but because of the outstanding long-term weight loss associated with the DS.
Yesterday, June 17th, 2014, Fox 31 came to Rose Medical Center to film one of our surgeries. They interviewed our outstanding patient (who has a significant family history of diabetes), they interviewed me, and they were in the operating room for the procedure.
Shaul Turner, a fantastic journalist from Fox 31, is interested in following our patient over her weight loss journey, and doing an extended story to chronicle her progress.
I would like to thank Ms. Turner, Justin the Videographer, Rose Medical Center, our Team, and, most importantly, our amazing patient (who will remain nameless for confidentiality issues at this time), who graciously agreed to have her story told to the world!
Thank you, everyone, for helping bring the Duodenal Switch to Colorado, and for giving our patients a potential tool to beat diabetes and obesity!
