FROM DR. QUEBBEMANN
Dr. Brian Quebbemann, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.M.B.S. is one of the nation’s leading practitioners of bariatric surgery. With more than 25 years of experience he has the expertise and understanding to help people who have not met their weight loss goals after surgery.
Dr. Quebbemann recently pioneered the S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Procedures, including the S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Revision of Gastric Bypass. This operation improves the anatomy of your gastric bypass and then adds on partial removal of the bypassed stomach, similar to the portion removed during gastric sleeve. The goal is to achieve greater success with an improved gastric bypass and the decreased Ghrelin (hunger hormone) that occurs after a gastric sleeve. Dr. Quebbemann has published several books on weight loss and has also invented the S.L.I.M.M.S.™-Lifestyle Procedure for lighter weight clients interested in lifestyle and cosmetic improvement.CALL DR.

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.™ Revision for Gastric Bypass, invented by Dr. Quebbemann, adds the power of the Sleeve Gastrectomy to the Gastric Bypass. In addition to correcting surgical anatomy that may have changed over time, S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Revision increases the potential benefits of a revision by decreasing your body’s production of the hunger hormone Ghrelin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO IS A S.L.I.M.M.S.™ REVISION RIGHT FOR?
A S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Revision could be a great fit for individuals that have already had a gastric bypass, but want to improve their results for any of the following reasons:
- Unsuccessful Weight Loss
- Weight Regain after Initial Weight Loss
- Recurrence of Diabetes
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 THERE AN INCREASED RISK IN REMOVING PART OF THE BYPASSED STOMACH WHEN REVISING 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.
