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, corrects your gastric bypass anatomy and adds the potential benefit of decreasing your body’s production of the hunger hormone Ghrelin.
