Surgically Limiting Intake and Managing Metabolic Syndromes
Dr. Quebbemann coined the term S.L.I.M.M.S.™ to indicate that this procedure is designed to improve your metabolism and help you lose weight.
The S.L.I.M.M.S.™ — Metabolic Procedure combines the two best bariatric procedures in the world, the Gastric Sleeve and the Gastric Bypass, into one surgery, for the combined benefits of both.
TARGET THE METABOLISM
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO IS S.L.I.M.M.S.™ — METABOLIC RIGHT FOR?
S.L.I.M.M.S.™ — METABOLIC is designed to work ideally for most patients that already qualify for a Gastric Sleeve or Bypass procedure.
WHERE IS S.L.I.M.M.S. AVAILABLE?
Currently the new S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Procedures are only available at The N.E.W. Program in Newport Beach, California.
IS THE ANATOMY OF HAVING BOTH A GASTRIC BYPASS AND A GASTRIC SLEEVE NEW?
No. There are literally thousands of people in North America who have undergone gastric sleeve and later were converted to a gastric bypass. These people now have both the sleeve and bypass; however, they did not have the two procedures performed at the same time.
IS THERE AN INCREASED RISK IN REMOVING PART OF THE BYPASSED STOMACH WHEN DOING A GASTRIC BYPASS?
Published studies say there is not. Several surgical weight loss centers have removed the entire stomach during gastric bypass surgery and have reported that surgical risks are no higher than performing a standard gastric bypass.
